Is Go game easy to learn?
The tenet of the strategy game is “easy to learn, difficult to master,” and Go exemplifies this perfectly, even more so than Chess. Nearly an infinite number of unique games can be played on a goban (Go board), yet the game only involves one type of piece and a handful of rules that can be learned in minutes.
