What we're about

Welcome to the Oakland-Berkeley Go Club! As of 10/11/20 we are meeting online on Discord (no longer on Hangouts). We will return to our physical playing location at Cafe Espresso in Berkeley as soon as it has the all-clear to open again, although who knows when that will b

To participate online, you should do two things:

Go to https://discord.com/download (https://discord.com/download,) , download the appropriate app, open it and join Discord. (It's a very secure site.) Then use https://discord.gg/H3pFHkM to join our club server and you're there! This is where we chat, set up games, arrange reviews etc.

The actual games are played on OGS at https://online-go.com/group/4584 (https://online-go.com/group/4584.) . If you're not already registered with OGS you'll need to do that too.

These will both be live continuously, so it's also possible to arrange for a game at any other time; it will be easiest to do so during the announced time since more people will be available.

To talk to your opponent during a game without hearing the general conversation, you can set up a separate channel within our Discord server (easy to do).

Please do RSVP here if you can, and indicate in the comments approximate times you'll be able to attend.

Finally, as was the case at Cafe Espresso I and other experienced players will be available to teach beginners, give game reviews etc.

See you all online!
