As the most likely game ( reasoning@[1] ) that we will share with the aliens we are going to meet is go ( aka baduk/weiqi ) - it is a good skill to aquire. And this is not the only reason. There will be boards in the c-base assembly and also a playback of recorded and commented pro-games ( via gobandroid on ouya attached to a small beamer )

The rules of go are so elegant, organic, and rigorously logical that if intelligent life forms exist elsewhere in the universe, they almost certainly play go. - Emanuel Lasker, chess world champion

if you want to play a game or learn the rules - there are also nice boards and stones in the c-base assembly - just call ligi 9020100 or drop a mail ligi at ligi dotttt de
