They call it GO, or WeiQi in Chinese, or Baduk in Korean. But no matter what you call it, this board game, played weekly at the Asian Culture Center on the IU Bloomington campus, is perhaps the oldest game still played in its original form. The rules are very simple, but the strategy is as complicated as chess, and computers still canít beat humans at this mental exercise. IUB post-doctoral visiting scholar in political science T.K.
