The ancient game of Go pre-dates chess and draughts, has simpler rules, yet its subtleties defy attempts to computerise it.
Normally played on the intersections of an 18x18 grid (thus giving a playing area of 19x19 points), quicker games can be played on smaller boards.
This Instructable details the manufacture of a 7x7 travel board with unique reversible pieces and the capability of preserving a part-played game.
(I have to own up to this being a collaboration with Kiteman. Blame him for any weird language.)
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
- A large, empty matchbox (known as "cook's matches" or "kitchen matches" in the UK)
- Some dead matches, burned as little as possible (yes, I lit and extinguished these matches deliberately)
- Scrap card, preferably corrugated.
- Decorative paper.
- Sharp things, including a Dremel with a 2mm drill-bit, glue (we used PVA woodglue) and a permanent marker.
