    <p>GNU Go is a free program that plays the game of Go. It provides a text-only user interface, have a look at the cgoban
    or qgo package if you want to play on a graphical board.</p>

    <p>Go is an ancient game originated from China, with a definite history of over 3000 years, although there are historians
    who say that the game was invented more than 4000 years ago. The Chinese call the game Weiqi, other names for Go include
    Baduk (Korean), Igo (Japanese), and Goe (Taiwanese).</p>

    <p>In this game, each player tries to exert more influence on territory than her opponent, using threats of death, capture,
    or isolation. It is, therefore, a symbolic representation of the relationships between nations. Go is getting increasingly
    popular around the world, especially in Asian, European and American countries, with many worldwide competitions being
    held.</p>

    <p>The game of Go is played on a board. The Go set is comprised of the board, together with 181 black and 180 white stones.
    The standard board has 19 lines by 19 lines, but 13x13 and 9x9 boards can also be used. However, the 9x9 and 13x13 boards
    are usually for beginners; more advanced players would prefer the traditional 19x19 board.</p>

    <p>Compared to International Chess and Chinese Chess, Go has far fewer rules. Yet this allowed for all sorts of moves
    to be played, so Go can be a more intellectually challenging game than the other two types of Chess. Nonetheless, Go is
    not a difficult game to learn, so have a fun time playing the game with your friends.</p>
