Go is an ancient game that originated in China. The literal meaning of its Chinese name, Wei Qi, means "surrounding boardgame". In this game, each player tries to exert more influence on territory than her opponent, using threats of death, capture, or isolation. It is, therefore, a symbolic representation of the relationships between nations. Go is getting increasingly popular around the world, especially in Asian, European and American countries, with many worldwide competitions being held.
