Recently, the Massachusetts Go Association started playing Go in the Harvard University Science Center plaza, where many tourists and students walk to and fro. They got a lot of attention from students and visitors alike, as well as approving nods from Chinese tour groups! Harvard's Go club also stopped by to play a few games. The weather was beautiful, so it's a pity that winter will be upon us so soon.
In light of their success, I encourage everyone to try holding their meetings in a public, widely trafficked area! You'll be sure to gather a lot of attention, and it's a great way to drum up student interest at the start of the school year.
Step 1: Getting Started
If you've already got a club or group of friends that you regularly play with, then you're good to go! Otherwise, you can just head out alone or with a friend.
Step 2: Finding a Location
it's as simple as picking a public location with some tables and seats that you can use! I suggest locations like a food court, plaza, or public park. (Bonus points for setting up next to the chess players!)
Step 3: Have Fun!
A happy Go player is bound to make other people interested in the game!
