I used to be really into the game of Go. I even made my own board once from a panel of Beech wood. Painted the lines and dots on it and everything. But all good games eventually end up on the internet, and it’s a pleasure to have found Dave Peck’s Go. It’s a Google App Engine implementation of the classic game, and I gave it a spin. I have to say I’m very impressed. It’s simple, just like it should be. For those long, epic games, you can set it to email each player after every turn, so you can play asynchronously. And the best part of all? It’s open source and right here on GitHub. Check out davepeck/appengine-go and maybe learn a thing or two!
