Go (also spelled "Goe") is a popular Japanese board game. Although its origins are in China, this entertaining game is played all around the world. There is even a Manga based off of the game called Hikaru No Go.
In this Instructable, I will be showing you how to make your own Go board.

Today we are going to use Microsoft Word to make the board. There is a mac version for Word, but I don't know how to do it on a mac. Sorry... =(
1) Open up Word.
2)On the table menu, roll your mouse over "Insert", and click on "Table" (mac users should just insert a table in any way they can)
3) On the pop-up window, set the columns and rows to 18. We set it to 18 because Word tables go by boxes, but Go uses the intersections between boxes to play pieces (19x19 is the most common size of go board. There are also 13x13 and 9x9 for beginners.) Set the AutoFit behavior to "AutoFit to window" Click OK.
Don't worry if the table seems small, it will stretch out to more than just one page in the next step
***OPTIONAL*** You can resize the table bigger if you want. You can also use the "Draw Table" functions to make the lines thicker or thinner. See the 2nd and 4th images
