Does anyone here play? I've recently started playing, and it's really addictive.

I'm always fascinated by the evolution of a game playing out as if some viral swarm breeding and assimilating before itself dying by degrees, only to renew the process once more.

I've used to play it actively for ~2 years. I still play once or twice a month, but I'm not as into it as I used to be.

I spend a couple weeks learning to play it. Too hard for me to become good at it, I should have started young.

A friend of mine, well over 30, used to work at an insurance company. He wouldn't have it however, and decided to become a go professional. He would spend his free time from work in go clubs, learning from people better than him and look up professional games on the internet. Eventually, he made it.

Sure, there's something to be said about talent, and it's most certainly better to start early but it's not impossible to get good at something if you're willing to put in the effort.

I play every now and then online. I brought a board and stones 3-4 years ago. Sadly, no one in my area even knows about the game, so i use the board to plan out moves and study games.

i used to play online, although i just solve problems once in a while, since i've not been able to get stronger through play in the past. what i really need is a real person to play against, although no one in my area does this either.
