What is Go?
Go (wéiqí, baduk) is a strategy board game with simple rules. Two players, one takes black while the other takes white, take turns placing one stone on a board. The goal of the game is to surround more territory than the opponent. Go originated in China over 3,000 years ago and is the oldest board game continuously played until the present day.
There are more than 10170 possible board configurations, making Go a googol times more complex than chess. Go is a profoundly complex board game, requiring abstraction and multiple layers of strategic thinking.
