templates for printing gobans


Please note that I created a little script that will generate a template much to your wishes automatically.
Naturally this script is publically available: Making Gobans - creating lines and hoshi

On this page you'll find templates for 9x9 and 19x19 gobans.

The dimensions used correspond exactly to the standard-sizes for gobans as defined on the previous page (german). That means the lines and spaces match well with the standard size of stones of 22.5mm for black and a bit larger for white stones.

The lines are 1mm thick.
The frame in some images indicates what the size of an actual goban would be.

The 9x9 is very easy to print: just print ;-). The 19x19 is propably more complicated since it does not fit on a single page. I have not tried it myself, yet.
