the chess tourney instigated this post, take a look
    #3882785 - 03/07/05 03:57 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

is anyone out there firmilar with the a game called GO? the game is known as wei qui in china and baduk in korea.

the game dates back to about 500BC, the boards were found in caves! this game is goverened by an eerily simple set of rules and still appears to be the most complex strategy game in existance. but dont take my word for it, independent research makes the shroomery go BOOM!

peace and i hope to find some fellow GO nerds!

Go! is a great game. Takes much practice and experience to master.

hurrah!

well in any case, and if only for you two....

if you google KGS go you will find a completely free, and easy to use server where there are thousands of players from all over the globe! if interested in pursuing the game that is place to do it, make a name log in and play a couple games. the site that hosts the server also has plenty of information about the rules and strategy.

i hop eone day we can see "go tourney" stickied!

peace all.

nethack is a roguelike game that has been in active development since 1985. It is very geeky. Somewhat like dungeons & dragons but on a computer and single player; also borrows from zelazny, tolkein, and other mythos. It's actually more like Diablo, but with good gameplay that requires you think out situations or you die rather than just idly clicking (the text graphics are only the best display for use - there are full 3d rendered versions of nethack if you must). Unlike most games (which WANT you to win), it doesn't care whether you win or lose, it is completely random. This makes it very frustrating at times (causing many a YASD [yet another stupid death])... Some people play it for years and never win. It's very addicting for some (like me) and others are quickly turned off by it due to its apparent difficulty and their apparent lack of patience.

I actually like playing Go better than chess, though it's been about a year since I played, and I'm not very good (18-20 kyu, maybe?).
