Counting territory on your salami pizza toppings!

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?

“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.


#219

When you go to your games, in place to post in “You know you are a Go addict…”!

When you come back to reading/posting in the forum after playing moves for all of your games

You do see the grain, and the lines on top, do you?

I do. I cannot not see them. Must’ve cost a lot, eh?


#222

When you’ve already checked the forum for new posts, but you come back to the forum anyway after playing moves for all of your games, because you know that - in the meantime you check it once more - there will be new moves for you. :wink:

Go memes!

… when you come to this thread immediately after you find something to prove your addiction.

… when your little sister’s birthday cake has candies that resemble stones (wish I had a picture), and you do everything you can to make sure you don’t eat one of your greatest toys. :grinning:

You know you are addicted to go when you can look at a 13x13 position and immediately recognise that it is a 2 stone handicap game with chinese rules


#225

When you begin to use go ranks to rate your other skills, such as “I’m a DDK typist.”


#226

So you’ve been improving then, Conrad? :stuck_out_tongue: :smiley: :wink: :smiley: :smiley:


#227

Lol

You know you are a Go addict when spring-cleaning time comes and the only thing you want to do is re-oil your stones and clean up your board after a long winter of hard use. :grinning:
