KGS (Kiseido Go Server)

The Bay Area Go Players Association has its own club room on KGS. There you can play Go, chat, and network online with other players in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Simply log in, click on the Rooms menu and select Room List. Next click on Clubs and find the room called, “Bay Area GPA.” Click on this room and then click on Join. You will now have a Bay Area GPA tab in your main KGS window, and clicking on this tab will take you into the Bay Area Go Players Association club room.

The following is a partial list of SF Go Club members and their KGS pseudonyms. Put these people on your KGS “friends” list and ask for a game when you see them online. When you’re in the mood for a face-to-face game set up a time to meet at the club. I’m sure there are many more online players out there, so if you would like to be included in this list please send an email to

IGS (Internet Go Server)

This is the server where Asian Go players tend to hang out, so you may not find as many English speaking players here. Still, it’s filled with competitive players that will play honest games.
