2,500-year-old tactical game of placing and capturing stones first popularized in ancient China. Can be played on different sized grids for shorter or longer games. Beginners can start on a 9x9 grid for 20-30 min matches that are ideal for learning. A full grid is 19x19 and can take many hours or even days to finish a match. One of the most elegant games ever created, the simple rules allow for surprisingly organic dynamics to unfold that mimic many aspects of life, such as business, war, politics, and nature. It's a game that everyone should try at least once.

This is a dual-sided board with a full 19x19 grid on one side and a 9x9 grid on the other side, perfect for beginners and/or experts.
