    That is an interesting Google Doodle, and I love the way Google comes up with nice ones like these 🙂

    I’d never heard of Go Players or such games earlier than this post, so always good to hear about the 185th birthday celebration of nineteenth century greatest Go player- Honinbo Shusaku.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂
