One Colour Go

Today, at club, I played my very first game of one colour go. I had heard it wasn't that hard, and I have to agree. It was amazingly easy to remember which stone was which colour. It was made even easier by the fact that I stayed away from complicated fighting situations ^^ It also was made easier by the fact that I eventually resigned.

What I found hard was seeing the health of groups at a glance (which got me into trouble) and reading out aji around groups. I guess I will have to practice it more.

After the game, my opponent made me change all the W stones to real W stones, just to test whether i recalled correctly. I missed one W stone somewhere, but everything else was fine. Interesting experience.
