Point is used in go in several related ways, to indicate:
- the intersection of two lines on the go board where stones are played. Certain points on the board are marked by small dots; these are the star points.
- the points in a territory, measured by the number of empty points it contains, as well as the score at the end of the game and the winning margin.
- the number of spaces between stones, seen in terms such as one-point jump and three-space extension.
Oriental languages distinguish between the three usages:
