Go is a great game. Unfortunately it takes a while to learn how to play and it is hard to find anyone to play against.
One of the things i learned playing go is about distance. The stones have power that extends varying distances depending on what stage in the game you are. When there are few pieces on the board the influence of each stone extends far; when the board is getting full there is little extension.
Same in life. If you are on a deserted street and someone crosses over just in front of you you feel their influence in your personal space - even if they are still 10 feet away. But if the street was crowded you wouldnt notice them.
