Interactive Courses

Interactive Courses

Our main product is interactive courses. What makes it special?
  • Accessibility. The cost of online courses is significantly lower than that of one-on-one or even group classes with a teacher.
  • Quality. Our courses are not lengthy screencasts, they are carefully planned and highly efficient video lessons with practical exercises.
  • Gamification. All the courses are integrated within the platform. As you solve problems you get XP, crystals and coins which lets you keep track of your progress and stay motivated.
Tree of Skills

Tree of Skills

The main tool of daily skill training in Go.

The strength of a Go player is a combination of different skills and abilities e.g. choosing direction in fuseki, knowledge of joseki and tesuji, a feel for good shape etc. As a rule a problem with one of them greatly weakens overall performance. We want to merge all the Go skills into a single gaming system, similar to those in RPG games. This will let you have fun when solving problems and find possible weaknesses in your play at the same time.

Tools and Materials

Tools and Materials

There is a lot of information about Go on the internet but sometimes it can be hard to find. For your convenience we want to gather it all in one place and add some new things.

  • Articles on a variety of subjects
  • Materials for motivation and inspiration
  • Materials for Go teachers and organizers
  • A database of biographies of great Go masters
  • An illustrated collection of Go proverbs
  • A modern joseki encyclopedia
  • A game database with pattern search
  • A multifunctional online game editor
Long-term Plans

  • Supercomputer game analysis.
  • Courses designed for children with colorful animation of games and problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s a complex project that requires a lot of time and considerable financial investments. And we need your support to get it done. These memberships are merely our way of saying “thank you” to all of those wonderful people who supported us at this early stage.
The project won’t be closed. But if due to some extreme circumstances it happens, everyone will get their money back.
You can activate your membership at any moment, as soon as you’ve decided that there is some interesting content. The membership’s duration is counted from that activation day.
The closer we get to the final project launch, the more expensive the memberships will get. After the official launch there will be different memberships and different prices.
You are welcome to contact us at contact@gomagic.org — we’d be happy to discuss that.
