Basic rules

These games are for two people; one plays black stones or crosses (X), second plays white stones or nougths (O). Game always starts with a cross. The size of board is 15x15 or 19x19. The basic "completely free" rules of all five-in-a-row games:
  • Rule 1. Play alternates between one player who starts the game (called Black because he is playing with black stones in the intersections of a board and another player (usually called White because he is playing with white stones).
  • Rule 2. The first player to get an unbroken line of five stones (marks) whether vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, wins the game.
