I recently took a crack at introducing our five-year to the basics of Go.
And while I have heard Go described as having five rules with one of those rules being that you play it on a board, quite a bit of it didn’t sink in. Go is theoretically simple in theory but it is ridiculously complex to understand in practice.
But it was his idea so I ran with it.
The one thing that he really clicked on was the concept of eyes and that having two eyes makes a group of stones safe. Which, to be fair, is a very important idea.
I wonder if he will ask for Go again and what he will learn if he does.
