  • News: Improve your game of Go (or just keep playing) with this collection of apps

    I've been playing Go, a grid-based strategy game that dates back thousands of years, for more than three decades, and it's a game I enjoy a great deal. Unlike chess, which is often an all-or-nothing game of attack and defense, Go is about slowly-evolving strategies to surround the largest territory on the board. Each player, black and white, alternates placing stones on a board with a 19-by-19 grid. Building up territory, where the opposing player cannot get a foothold, each player attempts to enlarge his or her territory, and thwart advances and invasions by the opponent.
