Your Move/Readers Write: Go-moku, not Go in HBR; Classified Ads Work

Thursday June 5, 2014

Go-moku, not Go in HBR: “The board in the Go Spotting: HBR article (6/2 EJ)shows a position of the game ‘five in a row,’” writes Nin Lei. “It is not a go game position. If you pay attention, you will see there are a few areas where four consecutive black stones (in any directions) are blocked by white. The more obvious give away is that they play the game in the center of the board.” David Doshay adds that in the game of Go-moku “the word ‘go’ means 5, not the game we play.” Thanks to everyone who caught this and wrote in.

Classified Ads Work: “I purchased my first go set on Friday thanks to the classified ad in the E-Journal,” writes Daniel Acheson. “Thank you!”
