Recently I learned to play the boardgame Weiqi (in pinyin) or Go, really a fascinating game! The strategy goes so deep, I find the game more interesting than chess. I wonder, is it a popular game in China?

By the way if you want to learn this game, I would recommend this website: <http://playgo.to/interactive> It uses interactive java applets to teach the rules of the game and lets you practise some situations.

And if someone wants to play a game of Weiqi / Go with me, we can do it online (at yahoogames for example). I'm only a beginner (maybe 10 or 8 kyu) but it could be a lot of fun :)

The best GO players are in China, South Karea, and Japan. Japan used to have the best players, then South Karea became the best near the end of last century. Now China is becoming the strongest. Really fantastic game.

you know in China, there used to be four arts called "Qin, Qi, Shu, Hua" (respectively: a Chinese ancient musical instrument, I-go, calligraphy, and traditional Chinese drawing). Ability on these was some kind of standard for art talents, and people good at these were highly respected.
So the game of go is surely a popular game in China, and it's one of the quintessence.
pity that I don't know how to play...
Wanna change my avatar...
Why always showing "PRADA"?!!!
