Our Analyst will arrange to get members' game records reviewed by stronger players.

Game records

Various collections of electronic records are available on-line or on disc. The GoGoD (Games of Go on Disc) collection was created by two former members, T Mark Hall and John Fairbairn.

There is also software for various platforms to allow you to record games and produce game diagrams.

There are a number of new sites providing videos and other resources:

As an alternative to Sensei's Library, we have our own glossary and repository of explanatory information called In the Dark?
