The Game of Go

Far Eastern games are becoming increasingly popular as they are “discovered” by people previously unaware of them. One old oriental strategy past time, the board game of Go, has devoted fans and players, hungry for knowledge on their passion. Here are ideas to write profitably about the game of Go.

Not long ago, while working as an online bookseller, I came across a small group of books at a local thrift store on the game of Go. The topic was completely foreign to me – I had never heard of the game. When examining the books, however, I was impressed with the complexity of the subject. Here were illustrated books covering all aspects of an ancient and complicated strategy board game.

The books were in poor condition. Though not up to my usual selling standards, I was impressed enough with their coverage to buy the whole lot for a few dollars. All the game of Go books sold quickly with strong competition between bidders, for high profits in spite of their condition. Players were eager to find any additional information on their interest.

Write articles or ebooks on some aspect of the history of the board game. You might research origins from one culture or country or the influences upon the game’s development from several, if applicable.

The history and development of methods and rituals of playing or Go tournaments etc. would make unique article or ebook topics.
