This video by the Portland Go Club talks about the basics of the game of Go, a game created in China but which developed most rapidly in Japan. We tell the story of one of Japan’s greatest players and his most famous game. We also touch on the state of Go today in 2020 and how it has grown over the years to become increasingly popular internationally.
