Go Zendo

Sorry I need to work now - I have to prepare my bachelor presentation for next week. I would host such a game when I have more time, but not right now.

I have to sleep , I can play tmr morning.
Wah 71 posts in two hours I bet it will surpass go meme.

Okay, I’ll do one when I come back in an hour or so.


Ok as long as it isn’t too easy.

Don’t worry, depending on the Master’s rule, this can be (almost) arbitrarily difficult. :smiling_imp:

I have some ideas, but I’ll wait to see submissions from others before trying them out :slight_smile:

But first let’s just see something. I think this should be red:

ooh, interesting. Haven’t thought of that, frankly, but I wrote my rule down to be sure of the wording, and this here does indeed apply.

still green

Interesting, this was red but when the white stone is one higher it’s green.

I’ll throw out a guess: the green boards are those where there is a 2x2-region with a single black stone and a single white stone, not directly adjacent to each other. (i. e. a shoulder hit shape)

I have a guess, but I’ll hide it so I don’t spoil the fun.

My guess

There must be at least one shoulder hit that has not been responded to.

Edit: Basically the same thing. le_4TC beat me by a few seconds :laughing:
