Boundary Point Go


Also see: Coin Go and Virtueless

One or more boundary points are selected at random and marked.

Players cannot play on these points, and a stone played adjacent to one of these points cannot use the point as a liberty.

This is of course an example of a general graph variant, but can be easily played on a conventional board.

Boundary Point Go Example  


The circles are the chosen boundary points.

White cannot connect F13 to the H14 group.

Black F9 group has only one liberty at b.

tapir: Seems to be simply Go on an unusual board. You can make these unusual boards directly in SL without circles etc. Best wishes.

ergodicgo: Yes. You are correct. It is just an unusual board. The point connectivity (graph) is different. To mark the points I thought it easier to spill a few stones onto the board from a bowl containing a third type. maybe like these ☯☯☯☯☯☯☯ thanks for the SL info and help.
