Really interesting game Okjb! I would like to play it but right now I have to reduce my games.
If this game is similar or not to Go-moku/Renju it does not matter. It could be a good idea to implement this game (as also Renju!) at this site. I think many people (mostly people that played Go-moku/Connect6 before) would be interested to play it.

okjb: This game is great, I played this last with a friend on a normal Go board. This game should be inplemented to the lots of games BK already has. BK should, however, prevent illegal moves like a2-b2 (same line, diagonal) the way as you cannot move a King in check.

Thank you for your interest to play Connect5. Unfortunately, I can't invite you too and also I can't even reply to your message since you ignore me. :)

Subject: If you want to play "Connect5" write here
Hopefully, it's possible to play "Connect5" at BK using the interface of Connect6. Of course, it is proper to do it in "Unrated game", "Not counted game" mode. If you want to test "Connect5" write here.

The rules of "Connect5" are in my post below from 15. May 2007, 21:14:11

Illegal move (two pieces at the same line) means the immediate lose.

I do not insist on long row rule. This rule could be decided by any way.

Subject: Re:
Chaosu: In some sense different, in some sense similar, it's a philosophical question. :)

By the way, in true Japanese Gomoku the long row is a win (like at Little Golem).

16. May 2007, 09:20:43
While in renju only white player can put 5 or more, and in gomoku more than five is prohibited so i would call that rule different not similar.

Proposition for the new game similar to Connect6 and Renju

The game "Connect5"

The rules are the same as in Connect6 with two differences:
1. It is necessary to place FIVE or more pieces in a solid row vertically, horizontally or diagonally.
2. It is prohibited for each players during the same move to put both pieces at the same line (vertical, horizontal or diagonal).

The game is more close to Renju/Gomoku since it is necessary to place FIVE pieces in a row (not 6 as in Connect6).
The three is not a threat to win in one move but it is necessary to close three from at least one side (if there is no own forced play). So, the game is similar to Gomoku/Renju, moreover, as rule, the playing is going at two flanks simultaneously.
There exist wins by means of "fouls", for example, if to place by one move two fours such that the defending points are on the same line. In some sense, it is similar to fouls in Renju.
It is very hard to win in early opening since to defend to more easy than to attack in the case of small number of pieces on the board. Therefore, the knowlenge of the opening theory has not significance. But in the case of big number of pieces on the board the possibilities for attacks are growing strongly because of "fouls" ideas.

The implementation of this game is very easy on the base of Connect6.

For Czech players: If you are interested in this game, please, translate this text for Czech forum.

Subject: Re: team tournament
Hrqls: If something happens to three players... then you can take a spot... We currently have Nap Solo and another player waiting in the ranks for a position if one comes available. At the beginning I simply went with the best players available, but at this point I am going by first come first serve after those initial 8. I highly doubt that would happen were three people can't play. But if it does it's your spot. I would suggest to you and anyone else wanting to be on our Connect6 team to play with another F/S and then come back to our F/S when the team tourney begins. ;-) You want to be part of the best don't you?

Any questions about anything regarding this please reply or send me a PM.

He said this was also the case with the other games such as go, pente, etc. It should be fixed soon!

Single Elimination for 8 players.
1 day moves. NO days off. 4 more people needed~

I know it is a bit of nit picking, but I just started my first games and noticed it said to "click on a square" to make a move, but when I did click on a square, it put my piece on an intersection instead of in the square I clicked. Maybe the wording on this command can be changed?
