News and timeline of future goals
– In the coming months, there will be corrections and feedback received from the readers, that will have to be implemented. After that, if there has been enough support, the goal is for one hundred printed copies of the Greek version will be made and then given for free to the Greek Go Association and Cyprus Go Association, to distribute as they see fit.
The translations have begun and hopefully there will be players from other countries that would like to help with the translation of the book.
