The concept is very simple but the game itself is very complex with a lot of options. Basically there are black stones and white stones, and a grid. each intersection on the grid counts as territory. If you surround an intersection or series of contiguous intersections with stones then that is your territory. if you surround a stone or a contiguous series of stones with your own stones then you capture those stones. each intersection of territory is a point and each stone you capture is a point. diagonal doesn't count, you have to surround them vertically and horizontally so you cut off any lines going into that territory.

Here's a decent youtube series to get you started if you're interested.

interesting, thanks.
the kind of mahjong found on computers (and I assume phones) is often not the 'real' kind, but who knows, maybe you found a good app

This looks like a more digestible form of Go. Official Go boards are ****ing enormous:



Too much **** to keep track of

there are options for board size. I start on the 9x9 to learn it. I play at 3 kyu difficulty and can barely beat the computer on a 9x9 board.

yeah I googled and mahjong is a completely different game from go. Doesn't involve white and black stones, it's tiles that look like dominoes with chinese symbols on them. I've never played that game.

apparently you can use it to your advantage, like you can have multiple 'fronts' accross the board and if you're not doing well in one area you can switch to a different part. But the idea of managing all that seems daunting to me too

They'll get over it like they did with their tiger training phases.

My tiger is so well trained at this point that he hunts for me. I just take him out to the woods and he brings me some rabbits and ****. What can YOUR tiger do?!?

Won my first game against a player over 1,000. Obviously not the craziest milestone but it's progress. I can beat the ~1,000 rated computers most of the time at this point
