Kigo is an implementation of the Go board game for the KDE desktop environment.

The game can be played on any board size from tiny 9x9 up to the normal 19x19 board. Handicaps and Komi points can be set manually. Two players can play against each other, but there is also a computer AI taking over one or even two players. The AI engine can be exchanged with any implementation supporting the "GnuGo Text Protocol", with the gnugo engine delivered with the game. You can request the game to show you a hint about a good move, display the sequence of stones set. There are two graphical tile sets and a huge collection of historical Go games can be installed and loaded directly from the main interface.
