    Gobandroid is a Free Software goban ( aka GO-Board ) for Android to learn and play the beautiful ancient game of Go (weiqi / wei-chi in Chinese, igo in Japanese, baduk in Korean)
    Go originated in China more than 2,000 years ago. The game is noted for being rich in strategy despite its relatively simple rules. It has been claimed that Go is the most complex game in the world due to its vast number of variations in individual games. [1] [2]
