I don’t know if you watch the movie “A Beautiful Mind”, but a board game that has also been played there attracts my attention so much. The name of the is “Go”.
Originated in China about 3.000-4.000 years ago, “Go” is a very common game in Asia. It is a territorial game and it certainly helps you to develop your critical thinking skills. It seems to be pretty easy at first, but the more you play, the more you realize how hard it is.
In order to make you learn the basics about Go, I have produced a short piece of writing. You can find my references at the end of the writing.
Hope it helps!
