How do we get more people to play Go?

How do we get more people to play Go? | Go, Baduk, Weiqi ~ Board Game | Scoop.it

As we all know, Go is a totally fascinating game.

 

Playing (or even watching) a game and seeing how groups evolve, come to life or die, is a thrilling experience – well, it is if you already know the game.

 

Not knowing Go and watching two players stare at a piece of wood covered in black and white marbles? Not so much…

Go Game Guru's curator insight, January 15, 2013 7:23 PM

This is a film about Yasui Santetsu, a Go player and famous Japanese astronomer, better known as Shibukawa Shunkai (played by Okada Junichi).

 

He was the creator of the Japanese Jokyo calendar, which was used for many decades, and the author of many books about astronomy.

 

He also played with his friend and rival, Honinbo Dosaku, in the castle games - who is a character in the story too. One famous game between Dosaku and Santetsu, where Santetsu opened on tengen, is depicted in the film.

 

The heroine in the film, played by Miyazaki Aoi, works at a shrine which still exists today. Here is Cho U 9p dedicating some of his famous Go problems to that shrine: http://tenchi-meisatsu.jp/news/2012/08/20/144422170/

Nope, check it out here Marc: http://stats.grok.se/es/201301/go they're the stats for January 2013. One theory I heard was that people are typing in 'go' expecting to go to Google, or a disambiguation page, but are getting a direct hit instead (this doesn't happen with English or French because page is not simply called "go". Of course, I'd be very happy if people were actually becoming interested in our favorite game too...

Open Your New Year's Mind Part Two: Go

Hidden within Go's tactics are complex life lessons. While the black and white stones may appear to indicate a clear divide between opponents, much of the strategy involves juggling unsettled, undecided ideas.
