We are finally working on putting together a new interactive tutorial system that will hopefully do a much better job at introducing beginners to the game.
The current state of the project is up on the beta site here: https://beta.online-go.com/learning-hub
We’re taking a page from lichess in the format (you will notice many similarities to https://lichess.org/learn/) as we think this is format a bit more approachable for players new to the game. This we hope will be a good improvement over our current tutorial format which forces you through a very linear path and requires too much reading by todays standards.
However, while I can write code, I’m pretty horrible at coming up with interesting puzzles that help teach people, so I would love some help and guidance for the actual content. I’d like to put somewhere between 4-7 “puzzles” under each section that focus on the particular section topic.
So for anyone interested in helping come up with the little mini puzzles, your help would be welcome!
Here’s the current need (I’ll update this as we go along):
4-7 puzzles teaching how to defend and create eyes.
4-7 puzzles on ladders
4-7 puzzles on snapback
4-7 puzzles on identifying false eyes
4-7 puzzles on cutting stones
4-7 puzzles on jumping stones
4-7 puzzles on semai
4-7 puzzles on identifying seki
4-7 puzzles on ko battles
Any other puzzles on other fundamental concepts are also very welcome, I’d be happy to add new categories.
Thanks in advance for everyone who contributes!
To contribute, just make a demo board of a position, upload an SGF, or create a puzzle - then paste a link to the board/sgf/puzzle here along with a quick one line description about what category you think it belongs to.
