# 1.6. Does komi and handicap change with board size? (Go)

See section 1.5.

Regarding handicap games, the following table gives one possible way
of allocating handicap and komi on 13x13 boards. First column:
Strength difference on 19x19 goban, second column, handicap on 13x13
goban, third column, komi to white.

```Difference  13x13   Komi   Difference   13x13   Komi
0         0      5.5       10        4       5.5
1*        0      5.5       11        4       2.5
2         0      2.5       12        4       -0.5

player takes black and plays first.
