Go is almost 4,000 years old and is the oldest game to still be played in its original form. The creation of the game has been credited to Yao, (Traditional Chinese: 堯, Simplified Chinese: 尧) [1], an ancient king of China, as a means of educating his less than brilliant son but this is most likely not the actual beginning of the game. Many scholars believe that the origins of go are in divination and fortune telling. Wherever this game has it origin one thing is clear the game was first played in china.
