An evening of baduk with the British Go Association and BKS

Baduk board

Enjoy a game of Baduk (Go) with the British Korean Society and the British Go Association.

Go is one of the world’s great strategy board games and originated over 3,000 years ago in China. It is part of popular culture today in Japan, China and Korea, and known as Igo, Weiqi or Baduk respectively in these countries.

Go is a game for two players with just a few simple rules that is fun for all ages. You start with an empty board and then place pieces alternately, vying to map out more territory. However, if you overstretch, your pieces can be captured and taken off the board.

The British Go Association is a voluntary organisation promoting Go in the UK since the 1950’s. Three or four BGA members will attend. They will bring some boards, stones and explain, then demonstrate the game. Participants will then split into small groups where participants will have an opportunity to try Baduk for themselves.
