Came across this picture
of a round Go board on the net. For whatever reason, I became
inspired to write a Windows 95 program that would print out this round board across four
sheets of paper which can be taped together.|
This is really a fun shape to play on. Standard Go rules apply, and each point still has four liberties (even on the outside edges).
As of 5/12 the person who invented the round go board idea e-mailed me. It was Harald Schwarz ( firstname.lastname@example.org) who introduced this form of go during the European Go Congress Summer 1996 at Abono Terme in Italy.
