American Go Association


The [ext] American Go Association (AGA), was founded in August 1934, was incorporated in 1994, and is the principal organizing body for Go in the USA. As a volunteer run organization, the AGA works to build a sustainable community of Go players in the United States.

The AGA:

  • promotes the game
  • sanctions tournaments (More than 100 per year)
  • maintains United States national ratings
  • organizes the US Go Congress
  • selects representatives to international tournaments.

Since its founding the AGA has published several books and pamphlets, which include:

  • The Rationalization of Go? in 1941
  • The Structure of Go? in 1946
  • the American Go Journal beginning in 1949 - 1955, 1957 - 1961, 1974 - 2002, (replaced by the American Go E-Journal which began publication in 2000)
  • The Game of Go by Lester and Elizabeth Morris
  • The Way to Go by Karl Baker, 1986
  • The American Go Association 1995 Historical Book? by Craig Hutchinson
  • Go - A Bulletin Devoted to the Game of Go?, a single issue published in 1936

Currently (December 2007), the AGA publishes a bi-weekly electronic newsletter, the American Go E-Journal, and an annual yearbook.
