comment What are examples of Go played on non-flat surfaces, like on a sphere?
It's probably worth pointing out that you can't actually make a Klein bottle-it's a shape that needs four dimensional space. But in theory you would get a Klein bottle!

@Dane That's right. However if you add a twist before joining the first pair of edges then you get a Klein bottle. Have a look at the wikipedia link to see the other surfaces you can make.

+1 Great answer! Particularly glad you point out that all races/powers are not equal - that's a large part of the game :-)

The typical way to get these topologies using a square surface is by joining edges up: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surface#Construction_from_polygons I don't have enough experience of go to tell you if that would work.

comment Is Ultimate Tic Tac Toe solved?
It looks like you've missed the clarification in the rules: "What if my opponent sends me to a board that’s already been won? In that case, congratulations – you get to go anywhere you like, on any of the other boards. (This means you should avoid sending your opponent to an already-won board!)"

comment Why is queen placement on the first turn disallowed?
But if you disagree that these would make the answer better then don't worry about it-several people have already found your answer useful as it is, and maybe I'm just being slow! :-)

comment Why is queen placement on the first turn disallowed?
I was expecting an explanation mentioning something like first/second player advantage. Why would both players be motivated to open with the bee if it so often leads to a draw? I can't think of another game where something is actually banned because it often leads to a draw. I also think an example game could help to illustrate the tactics, even if it's a fabricated example.

I'm sure this is right, but it would be great if you could explain why in a bit more detail, and also if you had an example game as mentioned in the question.
