Go: A board game of territory and capture

The name Go is actually Japanese (they also call it Igo sometimes); in Korea it's called Baduk and in China it's called Weiqi (pronounced Wei-Chi).

Go originated over 3,000 years ago in China and is very much a part of Oriental culture. It was brought to the UK nearly 100 years ago from Japan and continues to expand in popularity.
