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.
"This is a great must have iPad game. And I love the fact that it really works your mind muscles. It is a very simple game but it will get you hooked." - tcgeeks.com
"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.

It's EVERYTHING everyone raves about!
Yes, it's very fun, very addictive and very competitive! I always have ten games going online. 👍👍
Thanks for half-nuking the Hint button and the ability to disable hints. Safe to assume that setting then disables your opponent from using hints in game vs you?
To those requesting chat. While that would be nice, but I have a feeling that cannot be offered without some major updates/changes on the server side. I wish though that for opponents using gameplay that we could communicate with opponents, perhaps via email.
This game is a cross between scrabble and sudoku. One the best games in the App Store!
Cinco de joyo!
