“…let’s promote this fascinating game of Igo…!”


Xinwen and Shao Lun believed that the ever first Go Club in Brunei was established by them in 2005 in Maktab Duli, Pre-University.

Without appropriate go equipments, the committee members had to start off by buying few sets of Othello board. Xinwen’s objective of setting up this club is purely just to promote the game of Igo instead of going world-wide ambitious domination at present [just-kidding].

Basically the 1st-gen means the 1st batch of members (2005) to join the Go Club and they are: Sin Voon, Shao LunYung Shin, Peng Hui, Evelyn Liaw, Yi Hui, Tsu Tak, Joyce, Setphanie Sim, Ameng, Howard Leong, Yau Yen, Wei Zheng and etc. Sadly say, Peng Hui is said to be the only active player left.

Until the 2006, the 2nd-gen members were better as a whole than than the 1st-gen and they are: Zhe Fan, Chiao Hong, Si Xiang, Han Yean, Lydia, Queenie, Devish How, Haidar, Radhiah and etc. The year also when Xinwen had a dream to go bigger, step deeper bringing the devoteful member along with him.

Xinwen, then contacted the International Go Federation and request guidance and assistance. This was the year, when Xinwen had earned from his hardworks – got invited to Korea and SEA GAMES.

The 3rd-gen member [2007] had more enthusiast and loyalty members such as Hui Chee, Chung Sun, Chiaw Yee, Hua Lik, Hui Yee, Ho Soon and etc. They were all considerably active in KGS and managed to reach balancely to 7-kyu.

The Society had a banner that will be given to the members of every year for signatures – to mark the existence of passion in the game of Go.

One of the greatest achievement in 2008, that more locals (malays) had started to learn the game of Igo! With the passionate members such as Zidah, Sarinah, Afiq, Ramizah, Jien Hann and etc. Xinwen strongly believed that the future of Go in Brunei cannot be so much vague as before.

2008, was also the year that members of the Igo Society brought and participate their very first International Tournament in Korea and Nanning, China.

After certain unknown issue, most of the existing members from Maktab Duli Go Club had been transferred to the new pre-university college, Katok.

The Katok Go Club is in charge by Afiq and Zidah. It is heard that the go club is very lively and the juniors like the game of Igo a lot.

Xinwen will be leaving Malaysia on the 19th of May and be seeing the new members in near future…

“…why should i not be the first to set up the Go Association, instead of asking why isn’t there anyone setting up one in Brunei?…”
