How do I change the rules? I absolutely HATE Japanese scoring system, and prefer the Chinese/ American one. Please can anybody tell me how to change the rules, thanks :)

It's really awesome. It allows you to use 19*19 for free unlike Go Free and there is a zoom option.

I've been using it for a while now, very good for a beginner like me who wants to learn I don't know what kind of player I'll become by playing only versus the same AI

Am using it to learn Go. Can win on the 9x9 when it spots me stones (at lowest level), but when we play straight up (me going first), I'm only winning about 33% of the time, so it is a pretty good challenge. Not to mention, this is just the 9x9 game at the lowest level. I get crushed with a larger board...

Usee Interface not the Best The stone controls are not ideal. Double tap to confirm move is not intuative and you need to be accurate in your finger placement. Also hold to zoom in is not standard. A better method would be to drag stone with offset from finger and maybe crosslines to indicate exact position. Also the standard pinch finger technique to zoom in and out would be better than hold down finger.

No landscape support Some devices are designed to be used in landscape mode. Unfortunately this app does not support it.
