Go Thread

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

I'm terrible but I'm willing to learn if someone is willing to teach.

chamber, how experienced are you?
There's nothing that says that a fake can't beat the real thing.

You must not imagine that for beings like you and us there can be laughter. The low men laugh, and we envy them. But for us, the higher ones, there is no laughter, only an unending vigil, purely serious, stretching on into the night.

I've signed up as "Alivy". Don't ask me why the username, it's an inside joke :3

I don't know how the system works but I'd be surprised if I was anything but a 29 or 30.

I have played Go before, it is a fun game.

I've been playing for about a year but I'm reasonably sure I do not deserve the rank it gives for playing for a year. The only things I've played are the computer on easy mode which I have only beaten very occasionally when it fucks up, and people irl who are even worse at Go than I am.

I signed up as "Whom"
Who said that?

Played half a game with Chamber, I think I somewhat remember what's what again.

Still not a fan of 19x19 which I forced us to play :(

I created a round-robin tournament for all members of our little club. It's set at correspondence speed, which compares to live speed the way mafiascum can be compared to epicmafia, speed wise.

I play go, I think I'm 1d at the moment on ogs, but I'm 4/5d when I play in person here in Japan so yeah

I'm willing to play games with / teach anyone who wants to, though I'm more well versed in the interface for kgs than ogs so if possible would prefer to teach on that server until I figure out how ogs does things but etc

Please do at some point, I've never actually met anyone good at the game due to a lack of players in my country

I made it non-public, which means that Who or I have to either accept your application or invite you, not sure which one applies.

Pagebottom!

Auto-matchmaking is in open beta currently on beta.online-go.com if you're interested in participating.

Going to be holding bimonthly correspondence speed tournaments. We've worked out most of the kinks in the system by this point.
