Come and enjoy a Game of Baduk (Go)

Monday 20 May 2019, 6.45 for 7.00pm
Korean Cultural Centre, Grand Buildings, 1 Northumberland Avenue, London WC2N 5EJ

Go is one of the world’s great strategy board games and originated over 3,000 years ago in China. It is part of popular culture today in Japan, China and Korea, and known as Igo, Weiqi or Baduk respectively in these countries.

Go is a game for two players with just a few simple rules that is fun for all ages. You start with an empty board and then place pieces alternately, vying to map out more territory. However, if you overstretch, your pieces can be captured and taken off the board.

The British Go Association is a voluntary organisation promoting Go in the UK since the 1950’s. Three or four BGA members will attend. They will bring some boards, stones and explain, then demonstrate the game. We will then split into small groups where participants will have an opportunity to try Baduk for ourselves.

Followed by a Korean finger buffet with wine.

Now open to BKS Members and Non-Members: £15 per person.
