Quotations

  • According to Edward Lasker, a chess player,
Chess is a game restricted to this world, Go has something extraterrestrial. If ever we find an extraterrestrial civilization that plays a game that we also play, it will be Go, without any doubt.
Hex has a Platonic existence, independent of human thought. If ever we find an extraterrestrial civilization at all, they will know Hex, without any doubt. (source Set Colouring Games, 2006. Page 163)
