I am not in the gaming business, but sometimes I wish that I was. I don’t mean computer games or video games. These are more like media ventures. I refer instead to classical games, like Go. Go is one of those games that you have probably heard of but don’t remember much about. I loved this intro from Wikipedia
Go (Chinese: 圍棋 wéiqí, Japanese: 囲碁 igo, [nb 2] Korean: 바둑 baduk, Vietnamese: cờ vây, common meaning: “encircling game”) is a board game for two players that originated in China more than 2,500 years ago. The game is noted for being rich in strategy despite its relatively simple rules. According to chess master Emanuel Lasker: “The rules of Go are so elegant, organic, and rigorously logical that if intelligent life forms exist elsewhere in the universe, they almost certainly play Go.”
Saying the game is “rich in strategy” may be an understatement. Go may be the most strategic of all board games. Here is a nice image of the game (from the same wiki article)
