The Game of Wei-Chi, by
Daniele Pecorini and Tong Shu. Graham Brash; 1991.
This book was originally published in 1929. It gives a historical
overview (including symbolism of the game and anecdotes about the
game), an introduction to the rules, a very small amount of
strategy and tactics, and some commented games. It's not very
well written and is out of date, much like Korschelt and Smith. Unlike them, it uses Chinese
sources rather than Japanese. The only bit that's not duplicated
in other books is the initial, historical/anecdotal section, but
it's not enough reason to cause one to want to actually buy the
I suppose that I should probably say `Shu Tong' instead of `Tong
Shu', but I'm not completely sure.
