Weiqi

Weiqi is better known as the board game:Go 圍棋 It is linked with Hsiu 6-7. Cf. I Ching: Wei Chi Before Completion 64 The most important of these consequences of the rules are the concepts of life and death. When a group of stones is mostly surrounded and has no options to connect with friendly stones elsewhere, we can describe the status of the group as either alive or dead. ... Life: This is the ability of stones to permanently avoid capture. The simplest way is for the group to surround two eyes (separate empty areas), so that filling one eye will not kill the group and therefore be suicidal. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_(board_game)
