  • RANKA

    is the Yearbook of the International Go Federation. The name refers to an ancient Chinese legend testifying to the fascination of go. A woodcutter, coming upon two mountain sages enjoying a game of go, paused to watch the game. When it finished, so much time had passed that he found that the handle of his axe had rotted away. 'Ranka' literally means 'the rotted axe handle~ and the term has become a poetic name forgo. In publishing this bulletin, the IGF hopes that it will make a contTibution to linking lovers of the game all round the world and conveying the fascination of the game to them.

    In this issue

    * A complete report on the 13th World Amateur Go Championship. This tournament was won, for the third time, by Imamura Fumiaki of Japan, but it was also notable for outstanding performances by a 13-year-old from Chinese Taipei and by the top European amateur playet: Our detailed coverage of the tournament gives a good idea of the ever-rising standard of amateur play throughout the world.

    *Reports on two other important amateur tournaments, the third World Women's Amateur Go Championship and the Interna-tional Pair Tournament, both of which featured participation by teams from around the world.

    * A detailed analysis of the first eight games from the 6th Japan-China Super Go series.

    *The section 'Go Around the World' gives a valuable update on new developments in go activity in many different countries. In this issue, for the first time, we present reports on go in two countries that are recent converts to the game, South Africa and Madagascru: Many of the older go-playing countries also help fill in the world picture.

    *Registry of go clubs around the world: our triannual update of where to play go whatever country you happen to be in.

  • On the Publication of the 1992 Yearbook

    The aim of this magazine, which was founded in 1985, is to present news about developments in international go to go fans around the world in order to popularize the game more widely and to strengthen the bonds of friendship among all those who love the game. Thanks to the generous cooperation of all our members, we have since then pub-lished an issue every year and are now able to present our eighth issue to our readers.

    This issue is an expanded issue along the same lines as issues number two (1986) and number five (1989), which, as full-fledged 'In-ternational Yearbooks', received a very good response from IGF members, and, with the aim of presenting as much information about the go scene as possible, has been expanded to two or three times the normal length of our bulletins. With your support, we hope to present more such yearbooks in the future.

    Go is a strange and wonderful game: even if the players do not understand each other's languages, exchanging just a few white and black moves will bring their hearts into tune with each other and create a friendship that will last one hundred years. It is indeed a splendid game.

    There are now nearly 50 countries around the world that play and love the game of go, and the go population easily exceeds 30 mil-lion. Go is steadily securing its position as a 'world game', both in name and in fact. In May this year, the European Go Centre will be opened in Amstelveen in Holland; in addition to spreading go, it will be a m
