I just played a game of Go at the KGS server using CGoban 3 against a beginner. He mistakenly marked a group of mine as dead that was very much alive. I tried clicking on it, but the dead or alive status of the group did not change.

How can I unmark a group as dead? How is it handled if the players disagree about the status of a group of stones?

  • It's been years since you posted this but, what's Go and what's KGS? – childe Mar 5 '15 at 22:33

    @Nitros Go is an ancient board game (I recommend it highly) and KGS is a popular server for playing it online. – CodesInChaos Jan 10 '16 at 11:44

According to this amazing FAQ page - "Revive the stones with shift-click on one of the marked stones. If your opponent insists in marking living stones as dead, ask for a referee in one of the chat rooms: nearly every stronger player is able to settle a dispute of this kind."

  • Shift-clicking is something I did not try, thanks. – Mad Scientist Jan 4 '11 at 21:39
