1) When you are ready, open MY COMPUTER and go into the Y:/ drive.
2) Click on STUDENT RESOURCES folder, and find KCHS folder.
3) Then find CLASSROOM RESOURCES folder, and look for WORLD CULTURES FOLDER
4) Inside you will see MICROSOFT CLASSIC BOARD GAMES, Click on the Icon CBG
5) Select the game GO (bottom row)
6) You want to play Human vs Human

Before you play, you should read the rules on how the game is played. This can be found under the HELP menu inside the Go game tab.

Challenge Mr. Farrell... I'll make a bet with the class, to play their best GO player. If you can beat me, there will be a prize for the class. However, if I win, the class will have to do an assignment of my choosing. :-) Are you up for the challenge???

New to GO? Here is a neat 10 minute tutorial clip.
