First Go game ever

Hello, Go community

Today is my first day here and, of course, I want to play my first ever game of Go. The problem is that I am understandably very nervous as I still have a difficult time understanding the basics of this game, so I’m wondering if there is anyone kind, patient, and understanding [of my many atrocious mistakes that I am inevitably and imminently going to make] enough to play a 9x9 correspondence game with me as well as dropping subtle hints to me so that I can begin to understand this game and hopefully improve.

Thank you in advance!


Sure :blush:. Ill play you and explain some things. Just add me as a friend. Feel free to send me a challenge for a correspondence game anytime, otherwise we can arrange a live game.


Welcome! Congrats for asking here for help! Off to a good start!


I remember when I first started playing. It was fun, it was bliss. I hope you remain like that.


Thank you!

Sending you a game right now. :smiley:
