Play The Gomoku / Connect Five Game (LI=7)

Details Features Contents Reviews (4)


Gomoku is a two-player game that is played like Tic-Tac-Toe. With Gomoku, the goal is to make a line (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) of 5 stones. Each of the 2 players takes a turn adding a black or a white stone to the board. Note that stones are placed on the intersections of the grid rather than inside the squares.

Also note that Gomoku is different from the game of Go, which is also for sale in this store. See ads below.

According to the official Gomoku competition rules, opening a game of Gomoku requires a sequence of special moves known as 'Swap2'. They may seem complicated in writing, but the Second Life version of the game has been constructed such, that it takes you through this sequence effordlessly. To play a game, you would not even have to read the rest of the instructions, but, instead, just start playing. For those who want to know more about the Swap2 opening sequence, this is the order of moves:

1. The first player adds a black stone, a white stone and another black stone to the board at any position.

2. The second player can either choose:

- To continue playing the next move with white, by adding a white stone,

- To continue playing with black, in which case the first player must add another white stone before the second player continues,

- To add a white stone and a black stone at any position. After this, the first player gets to choose the color. If the first player chooses black, the second player must add another white stone before the first player continues.

In addition to these opening rules, the so-called 'exactly 5' rule applies. A row of 5 stones will win the game. However, when a row of 6 or more stones, an 'overline', is made, it will not. In other words: only a row of exactly 5 stones counts as a winning configuration. The TBF Gomoku game will automatically announce the winner. More information for the rules of Gomoku can be found here:

The Land Impact of the entire game is 7. This includes all 225 stones on the board. Before each game, the time-out time can be set by clicking the side of the board. This can only be done by the owner. Time-out (per turn) can be set from 30 seconds to infinite. In case of short-term memory loss during a game, clicking the side of the board will bring up a menu telling you who's turn it is.

* The script inside is No Mod. This is a human vs human game. There is no option to play against the computer.

If Go is too complicated or takes too long, play this

Posted October 24, 2019 by Xenodermus 5 stars

I'm new to Go and the rules are quite complicated. On the other hand, the rules of this game are simple. It takes you by the hand and guides you through the opening sequence. Even a child could play it. A game of Gomoku also doesn't take as much time as a game of Go. Nonetheless, if you are looking for a bigger challenge, I highly recomment the Go game from this maker too.
