Have been playing Go for the past five months and have completely been enchanted by the game! This past Tuesday night at our club's weekly get-together I decided to have some fun with Go and the "Bird Box" blindfold fad right now. This wasn't a posed photo, it's from a REAL game:

And there is a traditional "fox" tale (I can't remember at the moment Chinese or Japanese) about a benighted traveler who thinks it is two women deciding to play a game of go where he has taken shelter. But it's dark, so they decide to do it "blindfold" just announcing moves. Till eventually one resigns "because I will lose by half a point". He wakes in the morning to find he is in a ruin, but remembers the game, and studying it, becomes a go master.

And think about Koltanowski (sp?) in chess. Playing simultaneous blindfold!
