Go, in Chinese as 围棋(Weiqi), is a game based on strategy and tactics and is the oldest game that is still played, being developed in China about 4000-4500 years ago. Even though Go is not as well known as Chess in the West it still has developed a large player base in North America, the game is noted for being rich in strategy despite its relatively simple rules.

Brock 围棋weiqi (Go) Club has many different levels of players in the Brock Go Club, from beginners with a few weeks experience, to those who have been playing for over 20 years. Go is a game where amateurs and experienced players can sit down and still have a really close game against each other. 

Brock 围棋Weiqi (Go) Club particpated in various of activities. 

Oliver (AGA 3.5 Dan) was invited to play in the Canadian youth team against the youth team of the US in an annual friendship match. Oliver won against Vincent Zhuang (AGA 6.4 Dan). In the match the US won the first 3 games that were completed but Canada won the next 3 games and because Canada won at board 1 which is the tiebreak, Canada also won the whole match. (SeeAGA news letter and individual results of the match
