Five-O is your favorite word game, minus the words!
Instead of letters, the tiles are numbers, and instead of forming words, each sequence of tiles has to add up to a multiple of five, and no sequences may be longer than five tiles.

"The price is right, and the game is fun as well as educational. I’d very much recommend it, especially if you’re looking for something the whole family can enjoy or even just for the kids." - ipadboardgames.org

How to play:
Players take turns placing intersecting sequences of numbers on the board which add up to multiples of five. For example, 7-3-8-7 would be a valid sequence because it adds up to 25. The sequence 3-9-5 is not valid because it adds up to 17 which is not a multiple of five.
On each turn, players may play tiles in one straight line sequence, horizontally or vertically. The first sequence must be played on the center square, and all sequences after that must intersect with tiles already in play.
The score for each play is the sum of all the number tiles in sequences completed on that turn. Colored bonus squares award extra points and multipliers.
At the end of each turn, players draw new tiles to replace the ones played. The game ends when a player plays all of their remaining tiles and there are no more tiles left to draw.

5* Game, but 1* due to Game Center errors
Used to LOVE this game for its design and addictiveness, but I have to drop it from 5 to 1 Stars due to its' decreasing functionality due to nearly constant Game Center errors. At least 3/4 of the time I get at least a Game Center connection error. Also it no longer gives audio or vibration notifications, ALWAYS displays that you have 1 turn, snd many, many other issues with Game Center that started 2 years ago this summer and get worse each time the iOS is updated. I contacted the owner 3 times, always got a swift reply, but no progress at all. VERY frustrating gameplay anymore. The owner/developer should either fix this, or if not refund those those who bought the deluxe version or perhaps sell it to Zynga or similar who can fix it and perhaps improve it by adding the ability to chat with or send texts to your opponent like with Words With Friends etc
Great but flawed
Love this game. Always play computer in hard mode and my record of wins is 47%. That being said, the tiles are not dealt randomly, especially with last update. Computer consistently gets a 5 and/or 10 tile each turn. It's supposed to be based on number of tiles played but it's not because I play 4-5 tiles each turn but only receive one or 2 5/10 tiles during the entire game. Please fix this glitch because I do enjoy the game, despite apparent computer bias.
Love this game but the last two times I've played on line, it doesn't allow me to finish my tiles on the last play. I would have won by playing my last tile but couldn't. Also on one game it said my opponent forfeited the game but on the board it showed him winning! Going to try one more time online but will not play anymore if it screws up again.
