2019 Fall Semester

Logical thinking, decision making, handling pressure, being able to recover from failures - skills you need. Undoubtedly. So, where do you practise them? Out there in real life, where stakes are high? Or, comfortably sitting in a cafe, sipping your favourite drink, by playing an ancient yet timeless board game. Your choice. The opportunity is here.

Beginners are welcome! Special fast track programme based on small-board midgame problems is prepared for them. Games are offered on 9x9, or 13x13. For playing on the full board, please contact in advance.

Location: College Cafe (or Student Hall if there is no available table in the Cafe, or outside of Cafe if weather is fine)

Time: lunchtime on the following dates, no need to book, just come to the table where you can see the Go boards
