I have been learning how to play it.  I have the basic idea down but I have no good strategy.  

If you are interested, I organize monthly events in Salem where playing Go is one of the featured activities.

Let me know if you are interested and I can give you more info.
The trick is not minding.

Salem is the capitol of Oregon.  It is about 50 minutes south of Portland and an hour north of Eugene.

Sorry if I'm butting in... ;)

Whereabouts do you live, Marth? Perhaps we might we know of a nearby Go group.

As for Go strategy... well, from what I've learned, 90% of learning Go is strategy. :) The rules are very simple. But that just means there's very little luck involved. Funny how the simplest games are sometimes the hardest of all.......

Are you sure nobody does? Unless you live in a small town, there might be people you don't know who play Go regularly... you never know.

I know how to play but don't (so I will quite assuredly stink at it lol).

I prefer chess. If anyone plays and intends on attending one of the next lanime's let me know. Got my first game in ages at the last one with some kid who did pretty decent. Had me scared O_o

Or if anyone plays chinese chess and wants to teach....I have a board/pieces somewhere I just never actually tried it. Sounded interesting as a I recall though.

God no, I don't go to tournaments. I used to go to regular chess tournaments when I was little, but that back in like 3rd-6th grade.

I don't know how to play chinese chess. Doesn't seem incredibly harder, just different rules/pieces. I got the board as a gift, been meaning to try it out lol.
