Description

Go is a 2 player abstract strategy game in which players compete to occupy the most space on the board, while surrendering the fewest stones to the other player. At the end of the game, the players count up the open spaces enclosed by their stones and subtract from this the number of their stones captured by their opponent. The player with the higher amount wins the game.
