The world as a Go board, and everyone as Go stones. If one does not want to be a Go piece, one has to be the Go player. If one loses the game, one will die and vanish. If one wins, one will enjoy boundless longevity.

A plain, simple Go stone makes Gu Hai transmigrate to the Divine Continent.

The Heavenly Dao is boundless, but the human lifespan is limited. If one becomes a pawn of the world, one will enjoy a lifespan of decades. However, when it is over, one will return to dust, vanishing like smoke. Can one transcend the Go board and become the Go player, to face heaven and win eternal life for oneself?

I am here. I want to live forever!


Gu Hai, a Go grandmaster of Earth, enters a land of cultivation. Using the Go Dao, he finds all sorts of legendary beings. Using these legendary beings as his Go stones and the three thousand Great Dao as the Go board, he schemes against heaven to gain eternal life!


Note: The cultivation of the main character is based on Weiqi, or Go. As most of Go’s English terminology is based on Japanese words rather than Chinese, I will be using those, as they are legit terms instead of just giving the pinyin or a literal translation. When most Chinese novels mention chess, they are actually mostly referring to Go rather than International Chess. 

Here’s a very rough idea of how Go is played. The literal translation of Weiqi, Go, is surround chess. A Go board is made up of vertical and horizontal lines, and stones are placed on where the lines intersect rather than the empty spaces. You basically take turns placing one piece (stone) down, with the goal of surrounding your opponent’s stones. When you succeed in surrounding your opponent’s stones, they are removed from the board. The victor is decided by who has the most stones left on the board. Since pieces are continuously removed, one Go game can take a very long time. 

In ancient China, Go was often used to evaluate one’s strategizing abilities for war. A standard Go board has nineteen vertical lines and nineteen horizontal lines. However, the board size can differ according to the player’s skill level.
