2/23/2023 Ben H is me... well, I am a young newbie to Go. I was writing around in a journal of mine and came up with an idea to use black and white dots for a cipher or game. After that, I looked into the idea and found Go. I have been into chess for about 10 years and have peaked in my levels and understanding (I haven't studied it) and so I felt a desire to tackle Go. After learning about the basics, I found it rather agreeable and have started purchasing theory books about it.
PJT 2023-02-25: Hello, Ben, and welcome! I see that this is almost identical to CardMagi. Perhaps you could make this an alias for that page, or add an explanation for anyone who stumbles over this. (There is no need to preserve this comment if you do!)
