The Seattle Go Center has some great events coming up in the next two weeks. Mr. Hiroshi Yamashiro 9d and Ms. Hiroko Shinkai 5d from the Nihon Ki-in will be visiting from this Thursday Sept. 13 till Sunday Sept 16. We will have simultaneous games and lectures, and they will be attending our big Anniversary Party on Saturday, Sept 15.

The Anniversary Party will start at 6:00 p.m., and feature a performance by the Koto ensemble "Silk Strings", which gave a wonderful performance at last year's party. The Go Center will be providing barbecue and some sushi. We are hoping that members can contribute side dishes, desserts, and beverages. We will have a banquet permit for beer, wine and sake. If you can help out, please e-mail manager@seattlego.org. There is no charge for this event.

One week later, on Sunday, Sept 23, we will have our Anniversary Tournament, with registration at noon at the Go Center. This is an AGA rated event with a total of $500 in prizes. The Open Section will have prizes of $150, $75, and $50. The tournament is free for voting members, and players under 18. It is $10 for all others.

As usual, there is more detailed information on our events page. Just click on an event in the calendar for to get the details.

I hate the way the Seattle Go Center keeps alienating the Nihon Ki-in.

Ms Hiroko Shinkai 5d introduced a Go variant to us this weekend that she invented, called cacomo.

I found it listed here, but not much information
http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/75761/cacomo

its played on an 8x8 grid. and there's a deck of cards, one card for each board coordinate. its a 4-player game, teams of 2 each. each player gets 5 cards, and you can only play on the coordinate of one of your cards. when you play a card/stone, you then draw another card from the deck.

if you are forced to play an otherwise illegal position, its captured immediately by your opponents and the game continues.

the team with the most captures at the end wins.

I remember an idea to play a go game that used cards with shapes of stones, and you could only play a move if it matched the shape on a card. I can't find it in Sensei's now.
