Dear Nate, Thanks for your interest! I also like Go a lot, even though I'm very bad at it! :P. I also think it's a great game for kids, most strong go players start very young, and a lot turn pro before age 15. GnuGo integration is certainly the way to go (no pun intended XD), maybe we can use a local gnugo instance speaking GTP with the Activity, for what I see, it shouldn't be too hard. The standard API for sharing (Telepathy tubes) can be used by the "host" to tell the other player what's going on. I'm just thinking out loud here, as I yet have to delve into the sharing API. Maybe one of the experts here can give us some pointers :). -- -Andrés
