Difficulty: Introductory   Keywords: Go term

Chinese: 目 (mu4)
Japanese: 目 or 子(moku)
Korean: -

a) 目 (moku), a Japanese go term, means point of territory, as in "Black wins by one point" (黒の一目勝ちです。)

b) It is also used in compounds for certain points on the board, such as komoku, takamoku, and mokuhazushi.

c) It also refers to a handicap stone. For example, Nanmoku? can mean How many stones handicap?. In this sense, another kanji 子 is used to differentiate with a). Also, seimoku (in this case 星目) refers to a 9 stone handicap.
