EGO is a software program that plays Go with a
strength around 12 kyu. You can choose from a selection of artificial
opponents with differing personalities.
Either side can take a handicap; you can play, unplay, and replay moves; choose between 19x19 or 9x9 boards; check on the safety/health status of your groups; receive hints as to where to play next; watch your margin over your opponent (or vice versa) and monitor prisoner counts.
The software is suitable for all Windows machines and WINE under Linux.
