I know everything about the game, except how to play it  Wink  laugh laugh

I am very interested though, where did you get your download for the mac?  I would like to get that going on here. 

It is a fascinating game, with a lot of history and skill, maybe we can get Joe Tamargo to post us some top tips  Wink  Or run some sort of tutorial for fun thing here.

For a robot opponent to download you could try--  http://www.gnu.org/software/gnugo/

GNU Go 3.8, released February 19, 2009, is the latest stable version. It is portable and known to work well on GNU/Linux, Windows and Mac OS/X systems.



For human vs human play on a server, try--   http://www.pandanet.co.jp/English/sintro0.html

This is the intro page to the first Internet Go Server (IGS).  You can simply log on and watch games if you want to.  The Go board is very pretty, even if you don't know what's going on.  However, if you know little or nothing about the game, you would want to watch a fast game, not a slow one.  If you learn how to log onto IGS and want to know how to tell the fast games from the slow ones, just post here.

http://www.gokgs.com/ is a good server to play at.
http://playgo.to/iwtg/en/ is a good site to learn from, it is an interactive tutorial that explains all the basics and should prepare you for your first game.
I can also help teach if anyone is interested, I'm only 12kyu right now, but I can teach absolute beginners up to about 17kyu.
If you play on kgs the KGS Teaching Ladder room is great, there is nearly always someone to help you with a review or teaching game.
