I have included e-books, mostly from SmartGo Books. Here you’ll find John Fairbairn still going strong with two translations of classic Japanese problem books and the multilingual ‘Black to play’ problem books, with a recent Spanish edition (Dutch is next).
The section of Russian go books is still growing (forty new entries), but still far from complete.
Future projects are completing and updating the go magazines, provide links to the original publications and adding photos of most entries.
I like to thank the people who have given feedback and put my attention to unknown publications. I wasn’t yet able to fulfill all their wishes, but I’ll keep working on it. :-)
This is a work in progress, so please report missing publications and give feedback.

Introduction to GO in the European Go Cultural Centre

The match between AlphaGo of Google Deepmind and the strong Korean 9 dan professional Lee Sedol has raised the interest for Go world wide. In order to introduce Go to a wider audience we are going to organize several introductions to go in the near future. Please return here shortly for details or mail us at office@go-centre.nl

 

The core of our building is the Japanese tatami room, named Kunwa-room, after Iwamoto’s self chosen name. We offer this room to Go players that want to play in a traditional setting, by appointment, through-out the whole week.

Go public – a Go promotion walk through the city of Bochum http://go-centre.nl/wp/go-public-a-go-promotion-walk-through-the-city-of-bochum/ http://go-centre.nl/wp/go-public-a-go-promotion-walk-through-the-city-of-bochum/#respond Sat, 14 Apr 2012 17:00:40 +0000 http://egccmedia.com/wordpress/?p=230 Continue reading Go public – a Go promotion walk through the city of Bochum ]]> Today Go public – one of the projects entered into the Iwamoto Awards has been realised. The players of the Go Club Bochum promoted Go with eagerness and enthousiasm. Here’s what the main organizer, Andreas, reports about this event.

“We trusted in the weather forecast and met at noontime in the main station of Bochum. Around 15 players gathered and while waiting there for the players to arrive, people already took interest in our go boards and some came to ask what we were doing. When we started to leave the main station the sun came out and it felt warm although we had around 13 degrees. It was fun to walk as a group with each of us carrying one go board and sure attracting the views of people.

We walked to a nearby public place which was our first stop and put blankets to the ground on which we then put our boards to play. On the borders of the blankets we placed flyers so that interested people could directly take a flyer without having to ask us and in case that people asked us we could easily hand them out. To our positive expectations a lot of people stopped wondering what we were doing and also a lot of flyers were taken as well as people sitting down with us and getting explanations. We stayed on the first place for two hours until we moved to our next stop.

The next stop was the main shopping street of Bochum where we found a nice spot to attract the views of pedestrians. We also received positive replies by the public but couldn’t stay too long since the rain started. As we were invited to be visiting a book store on our route later, we decided to go there earlier and it was ok since they had everything prepared for us. They had set up tables and put advertisement for us which was really impressive and kind.

Feeling wet and cold due to the rain we enjoyed to sit down in the book store and get some rest while playing in warm atmosphere. It is the biggest book store in Bochum, that’s why many people passed and stopped to see what we were doing. The book store even made announcements via speakers to make everyone inside the store aware that we are showing Go and that everyone is invited to join us. It was such a good feeling to hear it and made all of us happy.

During the day a lot of people who never heard of Go, but also people who had once played or heard of the game, showed their interest. We might have also created a new link to the Korean community in this area while one Korean woman came towards us and told us that she knows many Korean people who are looking for Go players but were not aware that there is such an active community in Germany. :)

We finished the day in a nice bar where we ate and drank together to discuss the day and play more Go. I’m happy to say that the project was very successful and that even players from cities like Bonn and Düsseldorf came to support us. Already during the day players asked to repeat the project in Bochum and if possible also in other cities. I am looking forward to it and can recommend this project for no matter which city or country as it is so easy to implement. :tmbup:
