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.

Best game with 1 major flaw
This is my favorite game and have played it for years...but 1 major issue is that if someone stops playing (for example you are winning and they don’t want to lose the game) there is no way to end the game without forfeiting...if they haven’t played for a week, either they should lose, or you should at least be able to cancel the game...but really, there are ppl that will refuse to play the last move so they don’t take a loss, they should get a loss if the game is essentially over but they won’t play...also, if someone challenges you to a rematch, you should be able to decline
Eliminate Pro quality
Eliminate Pro is the only iOS game I truly and deeply loved. That game was perfect in countless ways. Five-O Deluxe is a very, very, very close second. After years and thousands of online matches, I never ever tire of it.
Only thing it needs is a ranking system. I plead for a ranking system. PLEASE. I’m convinced I’d be atop the leaderboards, though I don’t know if I’d beat user “mspun” who’s probably the best player I’ve ever encountered. Other than that, this game is pure perfection.
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.
