You know you are a Go addict when …

… every time you see a big flat square object you ask yourself “where’s the grid”?

Or “I wonder if I could sand and varnish that, and then out a grid on it…?” :grin:

You should record the byo-yomi countdown on OGS as your alarm clock :stuck_out_tongue:

You know you’re a Go addict when that actually gets you out of bed!

:sleeping:

“Byo-yomi. 10… 9… 8…”

“OK, I’m up, I’m up!”

You know you’re a Go addict if you’re actually considering to sample byoyomi counting and put it in your phone as your morning alarm! :rofl:

You are sick if you’re thinking about sampling ING clocks. :crazy_face:

100 of them!

…one of your requirements in a potential husband is their willingness to play Go at least once a week
…you find a way to work a Go tournament into the DnD campaign you’re running, even though it means teaching the party how to play
…instead of taking notes in your college classes, you play against yourself in hand-drawn 9x9 boards in your notebook, making the board in pen and the moves in pencil so you can erase for captures
…you continue to obsess for more than a decade, despite a lack of opponents other than people you teach (who tend to stop playing after a week or so, because they were only humoring you)
…you ignore the need to have a functional brain for finals in favor of filling the time between tests with games of Go, because you know that the people you’re playing with are all quitting the Go club after this semester because they say it’s ‘too hard’
…when you regularly debate the feasability of turning your art skills to make fancy painted goban, not debating whether they’re makable, but rather whether the Go community would be insulted by them given the deep tradition behind how they’re usually made (and at the same time mentally claiming the ones you’d have to make two copies of so you could keep one)
…on joining the OGS forum, this is the first thread you read completely through, and you still have new examples to contribute

Is it still “Le Beaulieu”?

The legend of the photo says “Dans un bar de Bayonne”, and the FFG site says that the club meets in the “Café des Pyrénées, place Paul Bert”.

The Google Map photo seems to correspond.
