Gomoku

Gomoku

£0

“Go-Moku” (Japanese – also spelled “Gomoku”) or “wuziqi” (Chinese) is a very old game played with a Go set. The game can also be played on a sheet of graph paper using X’s and O’s. It is similar in idea to tic-tac-toe, but far greater in scale and complexity. The name means “five points.” It is debated whether this game originated in China or Japan, with more evidence pointing to the former. The object is to get five stones in a row. The game is played on a 19×19 board (such as the board used in Go), creating a large and open field to complete this objective.
