  41. Ko rule:  A player may not recreate the previous board position.
  42. Original superko rule (aka positional superko): A player may not recreate
  43.         any previous board position.
  44. Situational superko: A player may not recreate any previous board position
  45.         with the same player to move.
  46.  
  47. Fill-In Scoring:  Each player has exactly 180 stones, at the end of the game
  48.         they fill in their territories in turn until only one player has
  49.         unfilled territories remaining on the board; that player wins by the
  50.         number of unfilled territories remaining.
  51.  
  52. Pass stone rule:  When a player passes, he hands over a "pass stone" to his
  53.         opponent to be treated as a prisoner.  This helps make territory and
  54.         area scoring mathematically equivalent.
  55. White moves last: White must make the last move, generally that means if White
  56.         passes first and Black passes immediately afterward, players agree on
  57.         the status of groups first then White must hand another stone over for
  58.         his second pass.  This ensures both players make the same number of
  59.         moves and helps make territory and area scoring mathematically
  60.         equivalent.
  61.  
  62. AGA Handicap Compensation:  In AGA rules, White recieves 1 additional point of
  63.         compensation for every handicap stone placed on the board except for the
  64.         first.
