YOUR MOVE: Readers Write: How to Read SGF Files

Monday September 5, 2011

“To read Yilun Yang’s Life-Death Lecture in the E-Journal I click ‘download SGF file’ and allow Windows Explorer to
download the file,” writes AGA member Bong Joon Yoon. “Then I only get the screen saying ‘Copyright 2002-2011 Google Inc’; obviously I need to install a software to read SGF files. Can you advise me which software is good for this purpose?”
Our Computer Go page has links to a number of go programs, including many that read sgf files, and others that play go.
