Pro Pente is similar to Pente
, except that is is played on a larger 19
by 19 board (Pente
is on a 15 by 15 board), and there are restrictions
on the first few moves to reduce the advantage Black has by going first:
Black's very first move must be in the center of the game board
White's first move can be anywere.
Black's second move must be outside the 5 by 5 area in the center of the
White's second move, and all moves after that, can be anywhere.
You win Pro Pente by doing one of the following:
Place five or more of your stones in a row. In Pente and Pro Pente, six
or more in a row also wins, though it does not win in Gomoku.
Capture ten of your opponent's stones.
