Pair Go Rules
Pair Go is a fun and interesting way to play Go
Pair Go is played by teams of two partners - a male and a female player - the "Mixed Doubles" of Go.
There is a special etiquette of Pair Go. This envolves avoiding unmannerly behaviour and attitude. The environment for the event should be pleasant and higher than the usual standard, as should the standard of dress (jacket and tie recommended for the men). In order to encourage good dress, a Best Dressed prize is often awarded at Pair Go events.
