    Default Baduk/Wei Chi/Igo/Go

    So does anyone play one of the worlds best games,possibly better than chess(its harder than chess,i can tell you that)?Anyone play?I'm ranked around 15-16kyu.Which means I'm halfway to amatuer dan lvl.
    You can play Baduk on this server: KGS http://kgs.kiseido.com/

    I live in Norway, so no one has heard about any of those games, but I've heard about go at least. And I've tried to learn it, but there's nowhere to play it, and no one to play against, so I'm stuck..'-.-..Is there anywhere on the net you can play go aganist other people??(I know the computer can't play it)

    I believe that's the most popular go server for the net.
    Anyway, I play at my Go Club at my University, but that's about it. I haven't gotten much better recently, because I don't get around to playing often. Personally (I guess it's a bit biased but-) I believe Go is better than Chess. There are a huge amount more variations that can be played... plus you can have Handicaps! That's a huge plus. Chess always has to be played evenly, so people above your level will just defeat you, handicap stones in Go even the game up.
    I'm probably around... 18k-ish, if I could concentrate properly online anyway. I don't think as much online (nowhere near as much) because it feels like things should be going at a faster pace since I'm on the computer.

    Your gonna have to learn how to play it first,which really isnt that hard to learn.Looking ahead and planning is the hard part.Hate having to plan 50 moves ahead
