Printable Go board and stones


My 6 years old son wants to make a printable Go board and play it with his friends. It would be a nice project to make together. And here we Go!
Go rules on Wikipedia or http://www.usgo.org/rules-go or search for Go rules online.

Below you will find printable boards of different sizes: 9x9; 13x13 and 19x19. Each picture fits on standard A4 size paper. I suggest you to save the large size picture first then print it (watch video above for details) - though you know better what and how to do ;)

Kid (or beginner) friendly printable Go board 9x9.
Print the following two pictures (the board and the set of 81 stones).
1. Click on the picture. The picture gets bigger!
2. Right click on the picture.
3. Read through the options and click on...what is right for you!
Just make sure to print only your picture! Not my entire blog post with all the pictures and text.

If it does not work, then start from the beginning.
If nothing works again - then bake my favourite cake, and only then call me. I will help.
Optional! You may attach printed Go board to a cardboard using clear sticky tape or glue. Also, you may glue printed stones to a cardboard and then cut them out.


I found it is easier for me and my kid to cut hexagon stones than circular stones. You may want to try them too!


Printable Go board 13x13 on 4 standard A4 pages.
Print the following 6 pictures (4 pictures to make the board and 1 picture of 84 white stones and 1 picture of 85 black stones - total of 169 stones) as described above. You may need to cut the white margin (only if your printer settings leave a margin) from prints to assemble the board.
Optional! You may attach printed Go board to a cardboard using clear sticky tape or glue. Also, you may glue printed stones to a cardboard and then cut them out.
Have fun and happy Go :)

This picture fits on one A4 page. You can enlarge/zoom/scale it to any desirable size using your printer setting or image editing software. I made the previous 4 board pictures from this one using Photoshop.

Print the following 6 pictures (4 pictures to make the board and 2 pictures of 90 white and and 2 pictures of 91 black stones - you need total of 181 black and 180 white stones) as described above. Note: if you have any previously printed stones then you may need to make less stones. You may need to cut the white margin (only if your printer settings leave a margin) from prints to assemble the board.
