Go, in Chinese as Weiqi, is a board game involving two players that originated in ancient China more than 2,500 years ago. It was considered one of the four essential arts of a cultured Chinese scholar in antiquity. Its earliest written reference dates back to the Confucian Analects. There is significant strategy involved in the game, and the number of possible games is vast (10761 compared, for example, to the 10120 possible in chess), despite its relatively simple rules. Even though Go is not as well known as Chess in the West, it still has developed a large player base in North America. (based on wikipedia)
