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.

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 All About Equal Opportuity
The computer "sews" together perfect multi-rows and combinations that are all dependent on perfect cards. It gets them...all the time. It reels off 100+ hands like it's milking a cow. I get an opening where I can get a triple going from either end of a line. I don't have ONE card that makes a match. Haha. The odds of that are pretty phenomenal. Hand bred from the mind of a programmer. Frustrating, and ultimately not worth the time. I just played a game where I got my only 5 on the last turn, and no 10's. Real competitive.
Best game ever!
If you're reading this review: bottom lime just buy these game. I'm sure you and your friend will love playing crazy scrabble like numbers game. I'm playing this game from last 2 years and I'm still addictive to play it everyday.
I have played this game probably every day for the past few months. I absolutely love it. It is like scrabble but with numbers. That's the best way to describe it. No, it's not sudoku. But it's amazing! Just try it.
