Playing Go in Books


Speaking of fantasy … Wheel of Time readers may suspect that the game of ‘Stones’, mentioned every now again, is in fact Go.

I started reading the series before I knew Go, and finished after … was tickled when realizing where the game of ‘Stones’ seemed to have been inspired from. Even more so on seeing that the game is so darn common in that universe…at some points it seems like everyone knows how to play, or at least knows about it. :smiley:


The TV series Altered Carbon features Go rather heavily. I haven’t read the book on which it’s based, but I assume it must be there too.
