    I am looking for an -ENGLISH VERSION-
    I was wondering if there is any GO games for the NDS.
    If anyone can think of one, please let me know.

    Edit: I suppose I should explain what GO is. Most may not know it. It is of Chinese origin. Two players alternately place black and white stones on the empty intersections of a grid 19×19 lines. Once placed on the board, you cannot move or remove it, unless they are surrounded and captured by the opponent. The goal is to control a larger portion of the board than the opposing player.

    Edit: I found quite a few titles after digging some more
    - Itsu Demo Doko Demo Dekiru Igo - AI Igo DS
    - Daredemo Kantan Chou Chikun no Tsumego
    - Asonde Igo ga Tsuyoku naru Ginsei Igo DS
    - Umezawa Yukari no Yasashi Igo
    - 1500 DS Spirits Vol 10 - Igo

    Are any of them imported to [E] or ?
    I suppose I could play them in Japanese [​IMG]

    EDIT: No reply seem fruitful so far. To answer a couple of the questions.
    GO and Shogi are 2 completely different games.
    GO is not Othello or Turncoat either.

    Grimat: There is Shogi in Clubhouse, but Go is not there.
    MCheezy: They are both extremely good games. But if you don't enjoy strategic board games... Then this is not for you.
    Jurassicplayer: I'll look into it, thanks [​IMG]

    You could try Clubhouse games. There's a game in there called Turncoat which is the same as Go

    Is GO like Shogi?

    I don't know how to play either of those, but I would love to learn.

    Go and Shogi are completely different (there is no way to describe how different they are. pretty much everything is different).
    On the other hand, I once heard of a homebrew that sort of worked (but it was made for reviewing pre-recorded plays...although you can use it for a one on one with someone in the immediate vicinity).
    Its called DSgf.

    If this is the game I think it is, I've seen it by several different names. Reversi, Othello, (Turncoat, as already mentioned). New Super Mario Bros. has this as a minigame, using Bob-ombs as playing pieces.

    So DSgf is like a Kifu then?
    Or is it an activated option when playing an actual game and it records it for you.
    Only to review your own games...
