We focus on the East Asian board game of „Go“!
The Go game has – under the name „Weiqi“ – its origin in China and is more than 4000 years old. About 1300 years ago, Weiqi found its way to Japan and was further developed there into the form of Go that is mainly known today.
Even today, the game of Go is still highly regarded in Japan and China. It is equally popular in Korea under the name „Baduk“. Go is also played outside of China, Japan and Korea. The number of Go players worldwide is probably over 100 million.
