    And what do you already know/need to know? The question as it is now is rather vague.

    I will most likely be doing the program in C, however i'm trying to find partners at the moment who are fond of the board game.
    If the people i find program in Java, then i will be happy to write my code in Java.

    C has poor architecture by todays standards.. could you possibly mean c++ or c#?
    you might want to try it with flash, it would be more user friendly if you dont know how to program.
    c++ is built from c, but is simplified.

    I know how to play go. For starters.

    I would recommend you program the game in Object Oriented Style.

    A grid is easy to code for. Have each block (or interection) on the board's X/Y coordinates represent a section in a 2 dimensional array.
