Wood GO Set with Pull Out Drawers

This high-quality set includes a beautiful wood board with pull-out drawers for storing stones when not in use. Go is an ancient game of Chinese origin that rewards patience and concentration rather than greed and aggression. The shifting balance of territory and power can unnerve even the most disciplined and intellectual player.

The origins of the game of GO are masked in the haze of ancient Asian history, however it is thought to have originated at least 4,000 to 5,000 years ago.

Some say the board was originally used as a precursor to the abacus, while others believe that it was used as a fortune-telling tool, with the black and white stones representing the yin and the yang. Another famous legend says that the game was created by an ancient emperor.

By the time of Confucius (around 600 B.C.) GO was already considered one of the "Four Accomplishments" (along with brush painting, poetry, and music) that was required of the Chinese gentleman.

GO is the second most played board game in the world, and the oldest board game played in its original form. Like the martial arts, GO is an exercise in concentration, balance, and discipline. GO can be learned in minutes, but can take a lifetime to master.
