19th Century Game - Shusaku adjsmallWe play the ancient Asian board game of Go in this club. Go is a strategy game that is fun for both beginner and expert. We start out with small boards and simple instructions, and progress to the full territory-based game in a few classes. Since the game is easily handicapped, beginning players and weak players have an even chance of winning against more experienced and stronger players. This keeps the game fun for all.

The class will be conducted in English. This club is organized by the nonprofit Seattle Go Center, which offers a variety of classes and events. You can find more information about the Seattle Go Center at
