Hey, there, Go players!
Being able to play go online at OGS is a fantastic way to reach out to the larger world of Go. Indeed, we have the opportunity to meet such a variety of people in a multitude of places, all joined in their pursuit of a higher tesuji! But, let’s admit it, playing a game in real life (IRL) has a particular charm that is lost with online play: the feel of the smooth stones in your fingers, the way they snap on the board, watching the tightening of your opponents jaw, and so on.
Playing IRL for many at OGS is a relatively rare treat. So I’d like to start a thread where we can share pictures of the IRL games that inspire and delight us, and keep us coming back for more.
Please share your (appropriate) pictures (that you are legally allowed to share) of your IRL games, and make sure to make your Go game the star of the show.
To get started, here’s a picture of @calantir (on the right) playing Go in a Japanese noodle house in NY:
