How to edit GO games on FICGS

Hello all, I am just starting my first Go tournament, I still struggle to understand the so much alien game to myself, anyway, I like to edit and review my chess games externally with winboard, but I don't seem to be able to do the same with GO games, It seems as if the notation used is different than of that used by my software, I use PANDA-gIGo, so if anyone can help me by suggesting another program that can read the game format on FICGS or give me directions on how to edit it with PANDA-gIGo I will be very grateful. Thank you and have a good day.

SGF files

Hello Amir, you can download Go games as SGF files [see (download) link at the bottom of the game page] that should be ok to be imported by any Go software (!?). I don't know PANDA-gIGo though...
