Learning to Play Go
This app gives me a steady supply of Go “problems” to solve by playing out mini-games against the app. At each move, the app tells me when my move is “wrong” and allows me to see (if I wish to) what the app thinks would be “right.” When I have “solved” the problem, the app says so. If I want to, I can play the game out and prove to myself that the problem was indeed solved.
The difficulty for me is that so far I am not gaining much in the way of general principles that I can apply to new problems. I am not even sure what “solved” means sometimes. Does it mean that my configuration “lives?” Does it mean that I can capture all my opponent’s tiles?
I very much wish that there were some explanatory notes with this app. Judging from other comparable apps, there appear to be some conventions and configurations that are assumed to be in any user’s vocabulary. It would help me a lot if I knew what those were.
Very nice Go problem app
I’ve had this for a year or so now and am quite a big fan of it. It has a good amount of practice problems and the best part is the daily problems that are sent to you!
My only complaints are three:
1) The harder problems are not explained in detail. This can present a problem if you are just starting off on more difficult problems and are not sure why a certain move is incorrect.
2) Problems are not always graded well. I’ve seen some pretty easy hard problems that are solved almost instantly and yet some medium, or even easy, problems that are quite difficult!
3) Fortunately, this is only a rare problem but, sometimes, there can be more than one solution yet the app only accepts one way of solving it. This is quite rare though, so it’s not a huge issue.
Other than these issues, it is an excellent app!
I saw some playing the game and was curious enough to find an app to see how the game is played. I love the simple problems to solve, and the daily updates, but still have no idea what the rules of the game are that govern the strategy and make one move wrong and another right. I kept thinking I would figure out by seeing what works, but I haven’t yet. I ordered a rule book, but it would be helpful to have explanations-for good moves and bad. It seems that if there a problems to solve, the problems have solutions based in rules and strategy and it would be a great learning tool to have bad moves explained. I’m just spitting in the wind right now, landing by chance on a good move after several wrong moves with no idea why. Every problem is hard without knowing the underlying rules and strategy, so advancing from one level to another is meaningless to me right now. This app is only for people who know the game, but not people trying to learn.
