Step One: Learn how to play Go.
1. Work through this tutorial. Read the information, don't just "guess 'n' click." If you have questions about any of the problems, ask Mr. Eisman. Here are several links to the same page. If one doesn't work, try another.

2. Watch the following videos. As a beginner, you should only watch parts one and two. Part three won't be valuable to you until you've played a lot of games. It won't hurt to watch them over again later.
