The 3000 year-old game has its roots in ancient China and could be considered a highly strategic board game much like Chess. With only three rules, it's easy to learn for all ages!
Stop by and compete for a chance to win prizes and enjoy the highly addicting and exciting experience Go Club can promise you.
All ages are welcome; anyone under 13 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
