Post subject:  NGD Christmas Toroid Tournament on December 27

The Nordic Go Dojo will sponsor a toroidal go tournament on December 27, at 7–10 pm EET (Helsinki time). The tournament will be played on the Variant Go Server.

The two finalists of the tournament will receive NGD vouchers of €40 and €20, which can be used for participation in our online league and/or ebook copies of our books.

Participation in the tournament is free. The games are played on a toroidal (there are no edges) 13x13 board, made possible by the Variant Go Server. Area scoring is used, time limits are 5 minutes each + 10 seconds Fischer increment, and komi is 3.5 points. Seequ (the programmer of VGS) has made toroidal games particularly easy to play by implementing scrolling: you can click on the sides of the board to move the view in that direction, and there are also keyboard shortcuts (wasd) for this.

You can register for the tournament here.

Merry Christmas!

P.S. Our online league is currently more popular than ever with 38 registered participants. In January we will renew our league system by implementing a five-player league format, described here. If you are interested in affordable quality go teaching, please check us out!
