Okay this is a bit of a stretch. But in this article on the NPR website there is a particularly familiar icon in image #8. Anyone recognize the setup?

In 后宫甄嬛传 (Legend of Zhen Huan), Go shows up every few episodes as it is the game of choice that the Emperor likes to play with the Duke and his favorite concubine. I just wish they would show the board more clearly so I can see if it's a legit game :(.

In this presentation video about Board Gaming's golden age, you can see an old picture of Go being played. It's a very brief slide, and not mentioned by name, but as a part of the concept of boardgaming being a part of human culture for a long time now.

I didn't read the entire thread, so I hope this hasn't been posted yet. But If it hasn't, it should be.
A Beautiful Mind had a go scene. Russel Crow gets upset when he loses, storms off and claims the game is flawed because he had the first move and still lost.

She commented "意外なお趣味が(笑)" which I believe is "Doraemon surprises us (laugh)", but can't be sure(google translation).

Google translation said "hobby surprises us", and I assumed hobby was doraemon's name in the japanese original, stupidly. :oops:

Maybe not mainstream but the famous Jon Shafer (computer game designer) wrote an article mentioning Go:

Kind of a lame sighting, but in the anime Mawaru Penguindrum there's a floor board in one of the character's rooms.

A Go friend on FB recently posted a link to this image on what I think is the Vietnamese Go Association's facebook page:Image

I think it's pretty cool!
Anyone know anything about it?

I think a country's go association posting something go related is hardly mainstream ;)

But a 7x21 board! is this Vietnam style?

Yeah, I thought about that later. :p

Maybe I should start a Go Artwork thread?

It's by Andrea Hyon Taylor and illustrates a Korean folk tale.

Cool, thanks! Is the folk tale translated somewhere on the web?
Just found her site, here's the Folk Tales gallery. Wonderful illustrations! :)

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151369965464388 (via Istanbul Go School)

for those unable to understand (how I enjoy this, I never understand the chinese, korean, japanese links as well :)): these kids are from a training program for too clever kids interviewed at the occasion of the "national sovereignty and childrens day" (a national holiday in turkey). asked about their favourite lesson in the program two of them (the girl on the left and the boy on the right) answer Go.

they have half a dozen other television appearances with their go school if you browse the facebook page.

Go, the 4th most searched entry in the Spanish wikipedia (2012) :shock: (with almost 6.5 million visits).

I had to go all the way through this to make sure not yet included among the sightings. Weird because certainly a major mainstream film (and of course book).

"Hedgehog" (the book title "The Elegance of the Hedgehog")

First Poloma (the almost 12 year old girl planning to commit suicide on her 12th birthday) gives a corrected description of where go originated and how it differs from chess. Later she plays a game with her (just moved in) Japanese neighbor.
