Awesome Game! Must have.
I've always heard of this game in hearing one version of the name but I couldn't find it till now. The music is soothing and easily calms your nerves when your in the process of seemingly losing, the great thing about this game is that unlike strategies of attrition like chess you really have to use strategy to win, as it forces you to move in defense while at the same time moving in a way that can help you win but deceive your opponent as you do so. For any martial artist, military professional, law enforcement officer, or a recreation strategist this this a great game to both play and learn. Plus consider that this is an older game than chess that few know about so consider yourself that much more cultured and intelligent to get a game like this. For those of you who don't know the rules get five in a row in any direction including horizontal first...wins, and yes it can be harder than it looks. The biggest challenge is doing so with the least pieces be sure to block your opponent from doing so. And you can place a piece on any area where lines intersect that includes the outer portions of the grid. So hope you enjoy and good luck. Keep mind for you military professionals, many military leaders in the Navies around the world play this game with each other, as a way to test there strategic skills with each other so it would be better for you to stay ahead and not rely on attrition based games like chess or battleship, etc.
Awesome except for glitches
I played a game with the computer and nobody could win and the game didnt respond
Good game. AI provides a challenging game unlike others that are just too easy to beat.
