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.
What's New in Version 2.9.5
Updated for compatibility with iOS 11
Love the game,but
I have loved this game since I discovered it. Improvements over the years were fine, bug eventually fixed. It now runs fine but still has notification issues, but bottom line it still works. Top of my wish list is some ability to communicate with others. I did create a Facebook group for users to communicate with each other, but no one has discovered it.

Mix of Scrabble and numbers
Great entertainment, while exercising your brain. Basically, instead of building words, you look for multiples of 5. Try it!
Would love messaging!
Great game! Would love to have a version that is straight up with no triple scores etc...more challenging. Would also love to see a messaging feature like Words with Friends.
