Learn to play Go
Limited Capacity seats available

Go is an abstract strategy board game for two players, in which the aim is to surround more territory than the opponent. The game was invented in China more than 2,500 years ago and is believed to be the oldest board game continuously played to the present day.

This session is for beginners who would like to learn the rules and some very basic strategies. You'll also have a chance to play a game or two. We'll have boards of various sizes to try out, and if you attend you should learn everything you need to attend the beginner 9x9 Go tournament being run at RinCon.

Players each take the role of one of the factions attempting to control Dune. Each faction has special powers that overlook certain rules in the game. Each turn players move about the map attempting to pick up valuable spice while dealing with giant sandworms, deadly storms, and other players' military forces. A delicate political balance is formed amongst the factions to prevent any one side from becoming too strong. When a challenge is made in a territory, combat takes the form of hidden bids with additional treachery cards to further the uncertainty.

The game concludes when one faction (or two allied factions) is able to control a certain number of strongholds on the planet. Game should take 3-4 hours including teaching.
