Game Recording Sheets

To help you study your games it’s a good idea to make a game record for review later with a stronger player.

Choose either the 19×19 format or the 9×9 format. The latter includes 4 ‘boards’, A, B, C and D.

Often, players record white’s moves in red and black’s moves in black but any two colors will do. Handicap moves can all be noted as ‘1’s then white begins with ‘2’ as normal. Star (hoshi) points are denoted with thicker circles. Each move number is written in the appropriate circle.

Ko moves are recorded at the bottom of each form, e.g. if move 45 retakes a ko and plays where move 37 was played earlier but since taken, it can be recorded as ’45 at 37′.
