This was my first experience playing go and i must say i am very intrigued with the games simple rules and brain burning strategies. We started off playing on the small 9x9 board with me having a handicap. I won about 60% of the games with the large handicap. This decreased greatly as the handicap shrunk and my teacher began to win consistently. We played one game on the full size board that lasted about 30 minutes with me losing by a large margin in the end. I can see myself playing this game a lot in the future and wanting to teach others to play. I have begun my search for a nice Go set to keep in my library at home.
