6.9 Rules of Go

Our Annual General Meeting approved the American Go Association (AGA) style rules with no opposition on 5th April 2008. The statement of the Go rules used in our tournaments is found in Rules of Play.

This document is inspired by the AGA's official statement of the rules and our interpretation of those rules.

Tournament organisers can get an easy to digest statement of the rules in the AGA Summary to print out for display.

Players can get a crib sheet showing guidance in playing by AGA-style rules from Short Guide.

Referees should refer to Rules of Play for the definitive statement of our tournament rules of play.

Organisers of tournaments will also need the Tournament Organisers' Handbook and the Organisers' Toolbag to establish their tournament rules.
