Old fashioned games are a great way to pass the time. They keep people engaged and they require thought and strategy that many activities today don’t require. They can also be a social outlet for those looking to engage with others and to interact more. For all of these reasons, some people might be interested to know that the China Institute at 100 Washington Street is offering two five-session courses in an amazingly interesting and complex game called Go.
This game is more than 4000 years old and originates in China. It requires the use of both analytics (left brain skills) and creativity (right brain skills). The classes will be on Fridays from 10-12:30 on: Jan. 12, Jan. 19, Jan. 26, Feb. 2 and Feb 9. For those who prefer a weekend activity, they can take the class on Saturday mornings on Jan. 13, Jan. 20, Jan. 2, Jan. 3 and Jan. 10.
Go and you’ll have a blast doing so!
