The Surrounding Game

Behind each move lies a world unknown

"Twitch Plays Go" bring the film to gaming's biggest stage

On Saturday we teamed up with streaming giant Twitch.tv to host an all-day livestream all about the game of Go. We peaked at over 17,000 viewers!

Directors Will Lockhart and Cole Pruitt kicked off the broadcast with a segment to teach the rules of Go. Next viewers enjoyed a special showing of The Surrounding Game and post-show Q&A, as the chat-room was abuzz with comments. We had so much fun following the chat as the movie was playing - the comments were hilarious and wonderful.

The broadcast concluded with live commentary on back-to-back high-level tournament games. Stephen Hu 6d joined Hajin Lee to cast the semi-finals of the 2018 Creator’s Invitational Tournament between Justin Teng 6d (USA) and Peter Marko (Hungary), as well as the Collegiate Go League Championship.
