Brisbane Go Club

The Brisbane Go Club plays the ancient oriental game of go (also known as igo, weiqi, baduk, or stones) in the city of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. If you know how to play, we have stones and boards and opponents in a friendly, social, air-conditioned atmosphere. If you don't know how to play, we'll teach you.

The club was founded around 1976 at the University of Queensland, helped found the Australian Go Association in 1978 (the AGA in turn was a founding member of the International Go Federation), moved to the Pancake Manor in Charlotte Street around 1979, grew branch meetings at Sunnybank Hills in early 2006 and Chermside in late 2007 and departed the Pancake Manor for the Queensland Contract Bridge Club in July 2008. Later that year we incorporated, and stayed that way until March of 2013. The club passed through an interregnum for a year and was reformed as a chapter of the Queensland Go Society on Saturday the third of May, during the 2014 Queensland Open. From the 15th of April in 2014 until the 21st of February in 2017, we met at the GO Lounge in Greenslopes, until Cindy retired and closed the place. Then we met at Club Sosay in Paddington from 28th February until 11th of April that year. Since then, we have been meeting at Ace Comics and Games in Annerley.

Our club championship is the annual Brisbane Spring Tournament, details on the QGS tournament calendar.

The club is run by a convenor, Allan Hunt, answerable to the playing members of the club and the general secretary of the Queensland Go Society, Horatio Davis. Allan can be reached at secretary@brisbane.go.org.au, hand physical things to him on a Tuesday night or mail them to the QGS. Governance and elections are taking care of as an afterthought to the QGS general meetings at the Queensland Open each year.

We have a page on Sensei's Library, the Queensland Go Society Facebook group and the club Facebook page.

We meet every Tuesday evening from 6pm at Ace Comics and Games, shop 18, Annerley Arcade, 478 Ipswich Road, Annerley. Playing costs $5/night, please drop the money into the cashbox, boards are in the bbattered wooden Trunk Of Doom, parking is around the back via Dudley Street and then turn left into the little lane or out the front on Ipswich Road (good luck), snacks and drinks can be purchased on-site and food from the shops up and across Ipswich Road.
