Hi, I was thinking of finding/making a decent pamphlet to promote Go.
Google search gave me this:
"Promoting Go: The Guerrilla Go Marketing Toolkit - Go Game Guru
https://gogameguru.com/promoting-go/
A good Go promoter needs a good toolkit! Here we've tried to assemble a no-nonsense list of the most effective tools and techniques for promoting Go locally"

But the website seems dead. Does anyone have any of the info saved?
I also checked all of AGA/BGA printable materials and all of it looks very old and unattractive.

I appreciate any help!

Unfortunately I cannot help you with your search but I have another pointer for you. The German shop Hebsacker Verlag has produced a poster which gives all the necessary information on how to play the game and more. I like it a lot and cannot think of a (much) better way to do it. It's in German, but maybe there'll be an English version, too. You could try to ask them if they have any plans in that area. Here's a link to the poster in their shop.

I agree.
See also elsewhere on this forum.
E.g. How not to promote https://lifein19x19.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=11440 and On teaching complete beginners https://lifein19x19.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=13192.

I do think one does not need that much promotional material though. Some announcements okay, but flyers are even better, I think, also to be used as handouts. You mostly need some boards and stones. It is my experience that, once people show up, children and adults alike, they immediately want to touch and play the stones.

Of the Go Game Guru material, I haven't used much, except for the Instant Go Set. It is (was?) in PDF, and I used it with young children. They like it. See your PM for this PDF.

I made some teaching/learning material myself, but it is not in English. Just let me know if you want copies.

IIRC, there was a one page pamphlet by inkwolf using the characters from Aji's Quest. Can't find a link though. I remember a version with blanks instead of English so that you can put in your own translation.

Hi,
Here is, as an example, the flyer used by the french federation : http://ffg.jeudego.org/informations/boi ... antFFG.pdf

It's a three-fold A4 paper.

The AGF (American Go Foundation) provided beginner booklets and beginner sets with rules and "how to play" on them for teaching in my daughter's class. They were great to work with.

It’s linked at the bottom of the “Aji’s Quest” page: http://home.earthlink.net/~inkwolf/Inkw ... Quest.html

Making fliers is a very practical way to get the info out. I will be happy to share my ideas with you.

We have had several people come to the club due to fliers.
