Boundary Point Go

   

Also see: Tao 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  

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.
