[CAMBRIDGE] Saturday Go - Beginners Welcome!

Cambridge Public Library

This is a weekly Go meetup hosted by the Massachusetts Go Association, meeting weekly at the Cambridge public library.
We just restarted this event informally in June, and have been having pretty regular attendance. There are typically somewhere between 4 and 20 players with a wide variety of strengths.

There usually is no shortage of boards and go equipment, but bringing a set is appreciated, if you have one.
We always welcome beginners and new players, and will be happy to teach any newcomers how to play if they so wish :)

If you have any questions post here, or check out the MGA Slack which you can get an invite to on our website: http://massgo.org/communication/

We look forward to seeing you!

Virtual MGA Tuesday Go Meetup

Online event

NOTE: We've had 15-20 people each week at this meetup, but most folks aren't RSVP-ing via Meetup. Around half are from outside MA. Please join us, even if you didn't RSVP.


The "Natick" group is now meeting via Zoom + OGS, and includes many people from outside of Massachusetts. Beginners are always welcome. It is great to host people who don't live near enough to other Go players to play in person. The Zoom + OGS experience provides 75% of the in-person experience.

During the meetup, you can:

* Play friendly games
* Play league games
* Join a beginners group, or get teaching games
* Join a DDK or SDK study group
* Have your game reviewed, or watch other reviews

Additional information on how to participate is available here: http://tiny.cc/re64nz (updated 5/16/20)

On Tuesday evening, sign in to OGS and go to the Massachusetts Go Association room. Zoom details are posted there. Please set your Zoom name to include your OGS name and rank as follows: "David Kahn (dkahn 5k)". You can put beginner or ? as your rank if not known.

Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you.
