Tuesday — Amazing

There was fresh bread (THANK YOU, Chris!).  There were visitors from far places (Bellingham, Japan by way of Los Angeles, Germany).  There were fond farewells (good-bye to Peter Nelson, and thank you for your service) and new representation to the AGA (hello Nick Wilmes, and good luck at the national meeting).

And there were players who didn’t want to wait for the weekend to play Rengo.

Couldn’t wait for Saturday

A couple hours later, the board looked like this:

Go board nearly filled with complicated patterns

Rengo board two hours later; Black to play

The corner held some surprises.

Go life-and-death problem from actual play

Cullen Mott provided a kifu that covers from game start to early endgame: TheArgoGame (getting JagoPlayer working on the website will be a project for the future).
