consultation game

    Keywords: Variant, Culture & History

Chinese: -
Japanese: 相談碁 (soudan go)
Korean: -

Team game in which the players discuss moves - as opposed to rengo or pair go where players play in a fixed order without verbal communication being allowed.

Consultation games enjoyed some celebrity in the first half of the 20th century, the most famous being Segoe Kensaku and Suzuki Tamejiro versus Go Seigen and Kitani Minoru, of which there is a book published called The Go Consultants. There were rather more games published in the 1960s when the Asahi Shinbun started sponsoring games with 2 amateurs versus one professional in 1962.
