Gomoku / Pente

Gomoku is an ancient game for two players, often referred to as an advanced version of Tic-Tac-Toe. The object is to get five pieces in a row on a game board of (potentially) unlimited size. Players alternate turns. Gomoku has been popular in the Orient for centuries.

Pente is a commercial version of Gomoku, and combines the simplicity of Go-Moku, the flashy tactics of Niniku-Rinju, and the profound strategy of Go. Pente is a fast moving game of skill for two players.
