I recently started playing Go, and I’ve decided I’ll play it strictly for fun. That means:

You might look at what I’ve just written and think I’ve decided to be a lousy player. Maybe I have. But fun is what I want, and I don’t think Go gets enough credit for being fun.

Part of the fun, the part that’s easiest to explain without getting technical, is the visual appeal. I’ve had people who don’t play at all tell me the board looks beautiful.

A game in progress. (Neither player is me.)
