Prisoners

  Difficulty: Introductory   Keywords: Go term

Prisoners are the stones that are taken off the board after their liberties are reduced to zero.

在围棋术语中把对方棋子的气全部围住叫作吃子,把被吃掉的棋子全部拿出棋盘外叫作提子。

Depending on the rule set, prisoners either

  • are tossed back to their original supply, or
  • are kept separate and visible (e.g. in the lid).

See Samsung 2004 Dispute for what happens if there is any confusion about that.
