Go81 is a program which plays the game of Go (also known as Weichi or Baduk) on small boards (9x9 and 13x13). It uses Chinese scoring and a 6.5 point komi (or 0.5 when using a handicap).


Use the pointer to play. You can choose the players, the board size and the number of handicap stones 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. The opponent level 1 is fast but does not pass until very late in the game. That is good if you are just learning the basics but can be annoying later on. The opponent level 2 is fast in the beginning but plays better and slower later.
