What is KGS Plus?

KGS Plus is a group of extra go services provided by KGS on top of the standard features. KGS is well known for its excellent game playing and game review systems, and its fun atmosphere; these are (and will always be) free for anybody to enjoy. But some things - like lessons from top players and tournaments - take a lot of extra work and expense to put on. KGS Plus is a way to give you as much extra go services as possible all for one membership fee.

What do I get from KGS Plus?

The latest KGS Plus schedule is available on the web at any time. Take a look to see what is coming up; here's the summary of what you can expect to see every month:


KGS Plus will include one group lecture every week from a professional go player. We have several different teachers, so each week will have a different pro running the lesson. Some of these lectures will use the KGS "live audio" system, letting the teacher talk to the students while they can type questions back, and other lectures will be all text. Some may be reviews of pro games, others may be reviews of amateur games, others may be lessons in joseki or tesuji. Some will be aimed at kyu players, some at dan. The plan is to make sure that no matter who you are, some of the lectures will be just right for you. For just one KGS Plus membership, you can see as many of these lectures as you want!

Build a Library of Go Lessons!

Lectures will be saved on KGS, so if you can't be there to see the lecture live, you can still replay them later. When you replay the lecture, any audio track will be there, comments from players and from the instructor will show up, etc., to make everything look exactly as it did for people who were there to see it originally. As long as you are still subscribed, you can replay any lectures that took place during your subscription, so over time you will build up a library of lessons to see any time you want!


In addition to the lectures, KGS Plus will also include monthly tournaments. All tournaments will include prizes; some prizes may be extensions to your KGS Plus subscription, or gift certificates for books and equipment. We hope to have open tournaments with cash prizes in addition! As with the lectures, once you have subscribed to KGS Plus, you can join as many of these tournaments as you want.

How much does KGS Plus cost?

KGS Plus costs $15.00 US for a 3 month subscription. That means that if you only go to half the lectures, and one tournament during your 3 month subscription, you're still paying just over $2 for each event! If you go to all the lectures and all the tournaments, you're paying under a $1 for each.

Money Back Guarantee

If for any reason you are unhappy with KGS Plus, just ask for a refund within 30 days. All of your money will be returned to you no questions asked. This refund applies to your first KGS Plus subscription only.
