You know you are a Go addict when …


#198

When your baby is called “Atari” !


#199

When you’re PROUD that your baby ate all the stones.


#200

@smurph
When you order these black and white sweets from Holland because of that


#201

When, in a pub after a tournament, you persuade the person next to you to play 9 x 9 with no stones and no board. Pointing out the placement of the imaginary stones on the table. “First move is tengen”.


#202

Most pubs have a chess board somewhere which makes a perfect 9x9


#203

You know, I can more or less imagine a baby actually saying oshitsubushi. It might take a while, but if the kid hangs in there it just might happen. The pronunciation would probably leave something to be desired, but that could be overlooked.


#204

When any teaser as “361 blink, blink” it’s about Go!


#205

…you’re playing Tetris, and you refer to some non-obvious good play (like using an L block so that it makes two non-sequential lines) as a “tesuji”.


#206

… when you sneak out of important meetings at work because your correspondence opponent made a move

… when people at work starts asking you about your stomach problems because you run to the toilet every time there is a new correspondence move

… when you hear a non-go playing colleague say “we can’t tenuki now” in a meeting

… when you write your own app for the mac touch bar to be notified about new forum posts on ogs

… when you rush back home and cancel your night out because Cornel went live on twitch

… when you have to upgrade your cell phone plan with more data so that you can watch twitch on the go

… when you find yourself trying to avoid upper-case Ls in your sentences


#207

When you scour Asian art museums for any mention of the game of Go.


#208

Counting territory on your salami pizza toppings!


#210

You hate this god damn game, but keep playing because you love it.


#211

After a game with a friend, he unsuccessfully tries to convince you that “there is no such thing a Sente or Tenuki”, because “this is CHESS goddammit!”.


#212

Tempo?


#213

“Everything in excess; moderation is for monks!”

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom. - William Blake


#214

… you almost pee your pants every time you visit Go memes!


#215

When you start to “forget” boards and stones in nearby guesthouses or bars/tea houses. Well they could be more useful there at least.
Which may come with teaching the game to the owner, waitress and the cleaning woman.


#216

When the only clever and enjoyable gift you want to offer at every Christmas/birthday/anniversary let it be the 50 years of wedding of your aunt or a new addition in the neighbors family has to be a go set.


#217

…when your main reason to start new hobbies(poker, chess, running, etc)/try new activities is to improve yourself for studying go.

…when you find it difficult to take a hiatus (for the sake of improving upon return) because you’re not sure what you’ll do with your time if you aren’t playing go.


#218

Just one more game he said.
