This involves two teams of players taking either the Black or the White stones. Each player in the team must play in turn, playing out of sequence will normally result in a small penalty (usually three prisoners). Partners may not consult on how to play, or engage in any form of signaling. Communication between partners may only take the following forms listed below.

  • Shall we resign? can be answered with yes or no
  • How much time is left?
  • Whose turn is it?

The game ends when all 4 players pass sequentially.

Occasionally Rengo is played as Pair Go, when each partner is different genders.
