A recent commercial by Dominoes Pizza has both pleased and frustrated American Go players by depicting Go as a game for intelligent people. The nerve.

AGA President Allan Abramson thanked Dominoes for showing the game in their commercial, but suggested that they change it: “Reverse the roles, and have the boy make a move and the man sweep the stones off the board. The message now would be that you do not have to be the world’s smartest man to win at Go, and that a young boy can beat an adult. This would be much closer to the truth, and do a great deal to promote Go among the young in America.”
