Go is beloved throughout our world and times as an ocean of strategic play. However, relatively few people play, often citing difficulty in understanding the basic rules and strategy. To more moderately grade the learning curve, we have created an introduction to Go which marries instructional and game design with Monte Carlo artificial intelligence techniques to create a dynamic peer to peer-plus-one learning environment. We hope our introduction to Go can enable many more people to engage in its deep but creative problem-solving. This AI-enhanced learning environment also offers a model to consider for introducing other systems of rules and thought.
