Learning the Game of Go
The game of Go is easy to begin. The rules are simple, and the pieces (called stones) are all the same. There are two colors, black and white.
Finishing the game is harder. The game is over when both sides agree that it is over. However, if you are a beginner, it can be hard to tell if any more profitable moves are possible. This is where learning the game face to face from a more experienced player is better than trying to learn from written instructions or a computer. If you are in the Seattle area, you are in luck, because you can learn at the Seattle Go Center. Your first ten visits to the Go Center are free, including lessons. Our students include children and adults, from age 5 to age 90.
