The Las Vegas Go Club is looking for new and veteran players to expand the local USGA Go (igo, baduk, weiqi) chapter. The club has been active for a number of years and has a strong foundation of players of all levels. Total beginners or experienced veterans, we are always looking to meet new players!
“Go is… an ancient board game which takes simple elements — line and circle, black and white, stone and wood — combines them with simple rules and generates subtleties which have enthralled players for millennia. Beyond being merely a game, go can take on other meanings to enthusiasts: an analogy with life, an intense meditation, a mirror of one’s personality, an exercise in abstract reasoning, or, when played well, a beautiful art in which Black and White dance across the board in delicate balance. But most important for all who play, go is challenging and fun.”
Also, if you don’t know the rules yet, before you attend please check out the excellent interactive tutorial at http://playgo.to/iwtg/en/. Of course the core members of the Club will be happy to teach people from scratch.
The rules of Go are simple and almost anyone can understand the basics within a few games. However, players never stop learning or trying to improve. A wonderful handicap system and fellow players who enjoy teaching, can allow even beginners to have competitive and fun matches against seasoned players.
So whether you are just interested in learning about the ancient oriental game of strategy or a long time player looking to test your skills, please join us!
Join our weekly go club meeting at IHOP in front of the Las Vegas Premium Outlets – South mall every Saturday, at 4:00pm. All skill levels welcome! Stay for one game, or till we pack up (usually around 10pm).
