I live in Texas, and I recently regained interest in Go after watching Alpha Go and The Surrounding Game. I know the absolute bare minimum basics, such as how pieces are captured, don’t move placed stone, etc., but not much more than that. I would love to do an in person game, but due to my schedule, I can’t go to the Go group in my area.
I’ve been playing on the Little Go app on my phone on a smaller board, and just getting pummeled by the computer. I’m at a point where I can’t figure out how I should be thinking about my pieces.
I believe I’m looking for a correspondence teaching game, which I’m assuming is an asynchronous game? The last time I tried Go was when my father tried to teach it to me when I was a kid. Let’s just say I haven’t been in the same room with him and a Go board since that attempt.
I’d be interested in a 9x9 or 13x13 game before jumping head first into a 19x19 game, but not a strong preference.
