What is Go?

Go is a board game for two players. The goal of the game is to surround territory from the board. Go is popular in Asia where it has a rich history and professional players. It is unknown when exactly Go was devised, but it is at least 2500 years old. This makes Go the oldest board game in the world that is still actively played.

The rules of Go are relatively simple and can be found here. You are more than welcome to visit a game night even if you don't know the rules, someone will teach them to you.

Finnish Go Association is the main Go organization in Finland and Tengen is a member. More information about Go in Finland can be found from suomigo.net (mostly in finnish).

Game nights

Game nights on Wednesdays in Bar Vakiopaine starting at 6PM, you can find us usually on the 2nd floor.

If Vakiopaine is hosting an event that requires you to buy a ticket, we move the game night to Ylä-Ruth or Sohwi. Both places are within a few hundred meters of Vakiopaine. If you are visiting Jyväskylä, but can't make it to the game nights don't hesitate to contact us using the mailing list.

On Saturdays we play at Rentukka Club House (Taitoniekantie 9) between 14:00-18:00. During the summertime, club nights at Saturdays are less frequent. If you are interested in joining us on Saturdays, plese get in touch either through the mailing list or info@tengen.fi.

We also play occasionally on other days. Information about these game nights can be found from the mailing list, but it is in finnish so please send an email if you want to visit us!

Players of all levels are welcome!
