As one of the oldest games in the world, Go is easy to learn but can lead to a number of clever and intriguing patterns and moves.

How to assemble:
1) Print both sides #1 and #2
2) Cut cardboard from a recycled box (cereal boxes or moving boxes work great!) to fit
3) Glue the printed game board to the cardboard
4) Use recycled pieces from other board games or make your own game markers. Use recycled dice or a dice app for your phone or kindle if the game calls for it.

Simplified rules of the game:

This game is for two players. Each player needs a set of markers – these can be stones, coins, treats or pieces of paper. This game can also be printed and played with pens to draw each player’s markers; if you choose to play this way then you can skip gluing the paper to cardboard.

The goal is to gain as much territory as you can by proper marker placement.

Begin the game with an empty board. Choose who moves first. Alternate placing stones at the intersections of the squares. Once a marker is place it should not be moved.

Markers of the same color (or player) that are immediately adjacent are considered connected. If there is an intersection between a player’s markers then they are not connected.

One player can capture the other player’s markers by surrounding the isolated marker with their own. A group of markers can be captured if all the intersections touching the group are filled with the opponent’s markers.

Rule of ko: If one player captures their opponent’s marker then the opponent must wait a turn before they can recapture.

At the end of the game count the empty spaces that your markers surround. The player with the most spaces wins.
