500 Go Problems

Base Level White

The game of Go is, sometimes, referred to as a ‘sitting martial art’. Therefore this Go Book Series employs the colors of the martial art’s belts to show the Go player’s current level of development and understanding of the game.

This volume, the white one, is where the learning begins. The color white symbolizes purity, clarity, and – especially in Asia – stands generally for the beginning. The player has just learned the rules and now takes their first steps on the board, most often on the small 9×9 board.

These exercises are arranged in sets of six questions per page covering various aspects of basic understanding and techniques. The answers in this exercise book are either one-move answers or require markings of points on the board. Repetitions and variations can deepen one’s understanding of good technique.

This books can be used as a classroom tutorial, as an afterschool exercise, or as a test for self-learners who would like to overcome the fear of playing their first game.
