Introduction to Go in Japanese
Go is an intellectual game to fight on "Go board".
"Go board" and "go stone" are necessary for a Go game.
Go board is called "Goban" in Japanese.
As for the official "Goban", 19 straight lines are pictured in length
and breadth to the board of the tree, and a grid is made.
"high-quality Goban" is made with the tree called "Kaya", and Goban is supported with a decorated wooden leg.
As for the simplest "Goban", nine straight lines were drawn on the paper, and a grid was made.
"Nine line Goban" is for exercises.
The Go stone is called "Goishi" in Japanese.
Goishi is discal,and the size is slightly smaller than 1 grid.
The color of Goishi is black and white.
There are made with glass or plastic.
Goishi of the high-quality article is made with a beautiful stone of clam and nature.
In Japan, we are very cheap and can get in the Go set of the toy.
We can substitute the simple Go set with the set of the Reversi .
The contestant of this game puts "a black Goishi" or "a white Goishi" on the point of intersection of the grid according to a rule. And they compete for the number of the point of intersection that they own.
Basic rule of the Go game
- A contestant is two
- Two people put a go stone in turn and push forward a game
- First move uses the black go stone.
- Put Goishi on the point of intersection of the grid
- You can make Goishi of the rival your one. If your Goishi can surround the Goishi of the rival.
When you put a black go stone (4), the white Goishi stone is surrounded.
The white Goishi of you is a success and is used when count the grid which you occupied
- There is the position where you must not put a Goishi.
Please read an upper illustration diagram.
The person having a white Goishi cannot put a Goishi at (1) position.
It is prohibition to put so that one's Goishi is surrounded.
However, the rival puts a black go stone and can surround the white Goishi.
And he can make a white Goishi his one.
- We cannot put the Goishi in the form repeating itself.
I put white Goishi at the position (1) and take black Goishi.
Then, you put black Goishi at the position (2) to take white Goishi.
As a result, firstly the position of Goishi returned.
In this case I put it at the position (1) after putting Goishi at another position.
You put Goishi at the position (2) after putting Goishi at other positions.
Of course we cannot put Goishi successively.
We put Goishi in alternate shifts.
- When contestants thought that there is not a position to put Goishi, the game is over.
Ascertaining it at the end of the game is difficult.
The position that does not influence victory or defeat even if a contestant puts Goishi is left.
The contestant puts Goishi at the positionin alternate shifts.
Then, you put Goishi to the occupation part of the rival.
You took the Goishi out of a rival.
Finally the contestant counts the number of the point of intersection of the grid.
