Go Society

Welcome to the University of Warwick Go Society!

Go (aka Weiqi / Igo / Baduk) originated and was invented in China over 4000 years ago. The few simple rules of the game branch out into a fantastic range of practically infinite possibilties and paths of play. Every game, with only the alternating placement of black and white stones on a board with intersecting lines, tells a beautiful story of war, entailing sacrifice, strategy, and struggle.

Go is still the world's oldest board game continuously played today, and with Warwick Go Society you can meet others who play Go, and learn how to play Go yourself. You can find details of when and where we meet below, so mark your diaries, and come along to our regular sessions!
