Standard MSO tie-breaks apply, except that point spread is not applicable. Opening rule is swap2 - start player places 2 black and 1 white piece and the opponent has the choice of either playing as black, playing as white, or adding one more stone of each colour and giving the choice back to the start player. Gomoku is an abstract strategy board game. Also called Gobang or Five in a Row, it is traditionally played with Go pieces (black and white stones) on a go board with 19×19 intersections; however, because once placed, pieces are not moved or removed from the board; gomoku may also be played as a paper and pencil game. This game is known in several countries under different names. Black plays first, and players alternate in placing a stone of their colour on an empty intersection. The winner is the first player to get an unbroken row of five stones horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.

“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.
