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 sum 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.
What's New in Version 2.8.4
Minor bug fixes
Challenging and fun
This game is like the old board game called Quinto (not the app of that name) except it has the squares which add and multiply points. I like this game because it requires you to think to try to get the most points. I will buy the paid version. I just wish there was an option to turn off the add/multiplier squares.
Absolutely love this game with one exception. I cannot invite my friends to play with me and they are having trouble inviting me to play. Would have given 5 stars except nothing so simple should be so hard. Please fix this!!!
Great game! No glitches!
