The Meijinís Retirement Game is a go game commentary and history book by John Fairbairn. It is part of the Famous Games series. It covers the final game of Honinbo Shusaiís career, facing New Fusekiís main creator Kitani Minoru.

John Fairbairn has collected together various commentaries on the game, selected pieces, and welded them into a single tapestry embroidered with cultural and historical insights.

The game is also described in Kawabata Yasunariís novel The Master of Go from the perspective of the writer of a newspaperís go column and used for a meditation on ageing and the decline or change of Japanese culture, particularly Japanese go culture.
