9.2: Unusual gobans
There have been several discussions about Go being played on other than the standard (9, 13 and 19 square) gobans.
Whether the desire to play on nonregular gobans comes from the fact that 'normal' Go is too easy is unknown.
For some of these boards, the rules are slightly changed, but in general 'normal' Go can be played on them.
