Edinburgh Go Club  

Welcome to Edinburgh Go Club! Go is a board game of skill for two players. Originating in the Far East about 4,000 years ago, Go is known as 围棋 (wei qi) in Chinese, 囲碁 (igo) in Japanese, and 바둑 (baduk) in Korean. The rules are simple, yet the game is complex and fascinating. The club ranges in strength from beginners to strong players (30 kyu up to 3 dan).

New players - whether beginners or experienced - are welcome.


We meet on Thursdays from 6.30pm downstairs in Games Hub newly opened at 101 Lauriston Place



We have a library of Go books and magazines that you can borrow, including some titles that are out of print. For information about buying books, see pages on the British Go Association website.
