Package description for 'gnugo'

plays the game of Go

 Recently GNU Go has been developed into a more sophisticated program
 playing at around the 16 kyu level on the NNGS Go server. The program
 builds cleanly on many platforms. An ASCII interface and an Emacs mode
 are also supported. This summer, for the first time, it participated in
 international tournament play. In the 21st Century Cup held at the US Go
 Congress, GNU Go placed 8th in a field of 12. This may not sound
 impressive but actually we were satisfied with its performance. GNU Go
 won 3 out of 6 games and two of the games it lost were close. Moreover
 it scored an upset win over former Ing Champion program Wulu. In the
 European Championship GNU Go placed second, winning 5 out of six rounds,
 and losing only to the undefeated GoAhead.
