Go rules
  • Which ruleset is used on Dragon?
    Basically Dragon is based upon Japanese Go rules. With the exception of predeterming the placement of handicap stones, the board size and time limits. These Dragon-suggested defaults do not follow the official Japanese Go rules, but seem to be useful turn-based default values...
    In short, Dragon
    • uses territory scoring based on the players' evaluation of the board,
    • has no superko rule,
    • forbids suicide, and
    • allows the free placement of handicap stones.
      However Dragon defaults to use a Standard handicap placement of stones.
