Go169 is a program which plays the game of Go (also known as Weichi or Baduk). The 169 in the name refers to 13x13 which is the recommended board size.


Use the pointer to play. You can choose the players, the board size (9x9, 13x13 or 19x19), the number of handicap stones, komi, and Japanese or Chinese scoring by selecting the options from the menu. The program scores the game after it is finished. After the game has ended, you can return to the option menu by tapping the board anywhere. You can also undo the last move, estimate the score or resign during the game by using the menu. Suicide is allowed for the human but the program never uses it.
