A Chinese monthly weiqi (go) magazine which focuses on skill building.
As of July 2007, 433 issues have been published. Each recent issue contains sections on recent news, the middle game, new shapes, tesuji, joseki, a multi-page detailed game commentary, and a feature article such as the cover picture and feature article on Lee Sedol entitled Stone Crazy.
Price: 5.00元 (5.00 Yuan)
The same publisher produces two magazines of similar appearance, one covering weiqi, and the other devoted to xiangqi, both of which are prominently marked with the characters 棋艺, which would translate simply as "Art Of Chess". Chinese-language web-sites often seem to list them as:
- 棋艺(围棋版) - Art Of Chess (Weiqi Version)
- 棋艺(象棋版) - Art Of Chess (Xiangqi Version)
The two magazines are easily distinguished visually, because images of the respective games' boards and pieces/stones are included in the banner at the top of the cover.
