Go Review Archive

Go Review magazine, the seminal English-language go magazine of the 1960s and 1970s published by the Nihon Ki-in (Japanese Go Association), is now available in digital form! All 184 issues, from 1960 through 1977, including rare early ones no longer available, have been lovingly scanned to maintain the exact look and feel of the original. The archive contains a wealth of game commentaries, articles by leading Japanese go figures, fascinating pro-amateur handicap matches, and go news from the golden age of Takagawa and Sakata. This is an invaluable historical and learning resource. A topical index guides you to what you want in any of the later quarterly issues. Full-text search is available across the entire archive of more than 15,000 pages. Go Review Archive can be used on any device with the ability to view PDFs.

Go Review Archive is the indispensable addition to your go library, the equivalent of hundreds of go books for a fraction of the price.


Go Review Archive is available for purchase and download (10GB, USD 59.95) from PayLoadz.
