Go is a game of strategy and skill that originated in China 4,000 years ago, and has been perfected in Japan ever since, known in its beginning as the 'surrounding game'. The goal of Go is simple to learn: gain control of your enemy's territories and capture his stones. Easy to get started, though it takes a lifetime to master, Go challenges the brain to think in ways it isn't accustomed to. *WARNING: Choking hazard. Small pieces.
