I followed a link to the comic about Leibniz and go.
I just thought that if that interests you you might want to see the entry on go I wrote for the Latin Wikipedia (yes, there's a Latin wikipedia ). Check out all those quotes in the Loci section. Can you believe that many people who wrote in Latin mentioned go? Of course no author used the name igo... instead they used various circumlocutions like "The Chinese Game of Surrounding", so I made up that Japano-Latin form for the sake of convenience.
If you can read Latin yourself, what do you think of my ultra-brief summation of how the game is played?
