Go - More Than a Game!

Go - More Than a Game!

"Recommended. Originating in China over 2,500 years ago, 'Go' is acknowledged to be the world's oldest strategic board game. This program describes the importance of the game to Asian cultures and its increasing popularity in the US. Also players discuss the purpose and simple rules of the game and talk about the subsidiary benefits of playing 'Go,' such as, gaining a better understanding of the interrelationships between things." -Video Librarian
Although the game of "Go" originated in China, it was introduced to the United States via Japan, where it is also known as "Igo"; in Chinese it is known as "Weiqi" and in Korean it is called "Baduk." Invented over 2,500 years ago, it is believed to be the world's oldest strategic board game. Played by two players who alternately place black and white pieces on vacant intersections of a grid, which has 19 x 19 lines, the object of the game is to control a larger portion of the board than the opponent; despite its simple rules it is known for being strategically complex. This classic documentary introduces viewers to this ancient game, which is gaining popularity in modern times; also we meet a variety of players who discuss the game, the strategies, and why for them it is such a popular pastime. Produced by Kathi Twomey Wahen and Liz Manning. 03/09DE JSCA 15 min.
