A place for Go in the virtual world Second Life™
Things are looking up for the Go Center! Four community members stepped up and have agreed to take on a share of Vineland to help support the Go Center. We are still looking for two more shareholders, which will ensure the Center's future.

The Go Center is a community of people that get together in the virtual world of Second Life to play, learn and discuss Go. Whether you're a newcomer, beginner, or old hand, we have members of all different levels.
The Go Center is located in Vineland and is always open, but the Club meets on Thursdays:
Other times, use the group chat channel and ask for a game.
In world, please join the group The Game of Go aka Wei'qi aka Baduk for notices and chat about Go.
We also have a wiki page at Sensei's Library.
Contact Zarf Vantongerloo (zarf[at]notabene-sl[d0t]com) if you have any questions.
Go is a fascinating board game that originated in China thousands of years ago. It is played the world over, and extensively throughout Asia. Learn more at Sensei's Library, a great Go resource, or try The Interactive Way to Go.
If you don't have an account on Second Life already, head on over to the Second Life web site to learn more about the virtual work and create an account. Plan on spending about an hour or so getting use to moving and communicating in the virtual world, then head on over to the Go Center. Best day to try this is Thursday, our club day. See the times listed above for when people are most likely to be there.
