GO, also known as Weiqi (围棋) in Chinese, is an intellectually stimulating, strategy-based mind sport that has turned into a professional sport in recent times. With a history of over 3,000 years, it is the oldest game that has remained unchanged and has been enjoyed by royalties and scholars of ancient China, Japan and Korea.
Although GO has a few and simple rules, it is considered one of the most difficult and challenging games in comparison to other strategy-based games. Up till today, there is no computer program that can win any top amateur player in a fair match.
Other than playing GO competitively, it is also used as an educational tool to help enhance academic and thinking skills of young children especially in China and Korea. Korea’s Myongji University is the first university in the world to offer GO as a degree.
