White always moves first, though they place a Black stone on their first move.
Games may be played with komi, meaning that if the game ends in a flat count,
black has a number of virtual flats added to their flat count,
so that black may win or draw with fewer flats. The size of the komi is adjustable.
If neither player plays a stone or flattens a standing stone for 25 moves, the game is ruled a draw.
