Rule change Pente and Go-moku

 (Tuesday January 17 2006)

We have changed the rules of Pente and Go-moku to balance the game more, we have adopted the so called tournament rule. This means that black's very first move must be in the center of the game board. White's first move can be anywere. Black's second move must be outside the 5 by 5 area in the center of the game board. White's second move, and all moves after that, can be anywhere.

This is an excellent change!! The best way to play Pente. I would like to see the highlighted area disappear after Black has made his second move however. It becomes distracting.

Great! I l.ike the new rule. I agree with Cheri's idea tho. After the game starts to get going, the highlighted area does become distracting. Another thing I'm sure many would find helpful, is highlighting the spaces w.here captured stones were for a turn after they have been taken. The way it is, it's hard to follow, and easy to miss when your stones have been taken. Thanks for the great site!
