What is Go5?
Go5 is a simple but funny Chinese board game.
Here are its rules:
1). two players who take turn to place marbles
onto the chess field(just like GO except that
marbles are placed in squares)
2). one wins when he/she first makes 5 his/her
marbles in a continuous line. For example,
Black won in following cases:
1). You will play with the machine in the one-player game.
Try it: the machine is quite smart. Can you beat it?
2). The two-player game is an internet game.
It means that you can play with anyone
crossing the web.
If you don't have a partner, you may want to open
an additional Go5 to simulate the other player so that
you can see how Go5 handles two players.
1). Two-end-empty Triples and one-end-empty quadruples are your targets
while quadruples with two empty ends are too late to prevent from losing since
a two-end-empty quadruple has two ends to become a set of five.
2). "Worry about your own business first!". That is, sometimes blocking the
other player's Triples and quadruples is more important than making yours.
