Go Up

Whilst playing the game go we found a problem with the separation of the black and white counters and found it took a long time to gather them up. To solve this we have designed a new form of go which uses magnetism. Each black piece is magnetised and is attracted to the white cover so all that is needed to collect them is to scrape them off the cover.
After clearing up the cover no longer touches the black counters so there is no more attraction between the pieces.
