The Other Go

As in the game. I’m trying to involve myself in some mind bending games, rather than the time-suck games available on iOS. Yes, they’re fun, but I’d like to think I’m also learning something new. So, I’ve tried my hand at Go.

Since I am new, and have absolutely no idea what I’m doing, I will need to learn the easy way. A bit of searching, and it seems the best option is an iOS app (ironically) called Igowin Tutor (sorry about their 90s website design, it must just be a thing). The app is outdated, but I guess that I’ll still learn from it.

There is a book by Cho Chikun called Go: A Complete Introduction to the Game. I’m hoping that a good read of this helps.

In a near-future post, see my post about how I beat AlphaGo.
