My Humble Pentago Strategy Guide: Intro
What Pentago is...
Pentago is a two-player abstract strategy guide invented by the Swedish company Mindtwister.So basicaly it is tic tac toe on a 9x9 grid with twisting. This makes the game complex and challenging.
The game is played on a 6x6 board divided into four 3x3 sub-boards. Taking turns, each player places a marble of their color (black or white) onto an unoccupied space on the board, and then rotates one of the sub-boards by 90 degrees either clockwise or counter-clockwise. A player wins by getting five of their marbles in a vertical, horizontal or diagonal row (either before or after the sub-board rotation in their move). If all 36 spaces on the board are occupied without a row of five being formed then the game is a draw.
This page is a basic strategy guide to this new game. I will keep adding to pages as I have time and this page is by no means complete. If you have good strategy to add, please post.
