Customizable strategy variant format of "Go"

Yes you heard right! I found a variant format of Go that uses different kinds of pieces with different abilities! Each player starts with a certain amount of points to "buy" different kinds of stones, so they can build their own set. Aside from having different types of stones, the rules are the same as regular Go.

It looks REALLY fun, but I can't figure out where I can buy the different kinds of stones...

Wow, that is some complex stuff to add to what is already the most challenging game of strategy in strategy in the world. I think I would want to play very limited variants to get a feel for each new piece.

Since I don't know where to buy the new pieces, I think I'll have to put stickers on Go stones that already exist. But since I just started playing the game, I should probably wait until I have a better grasp of it.

Yeah, Go isn't something I would want to just jam stuff like this into... the game is ridiculously difficult as is, I'm not sure if "customization" is the way I would go with this particular game. Just my thoughts imo. Need idea though!
