Rules

Pentago is a two-player abstract strategy game invented by the Swedish company Mindtwister.

The game is played on a 6x6 board divided into four 3x3 sub-boards (or quadrants). Taking turns, the two players place a marble of their colour (either black or white) onto an unoccupied space on the board, and then rotate 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.

In short, just place a marble and rotate a sub-board. Form a five-in-a-row and win!

The features of this game are:

  • Made with Mootools framework
  • Sub-board rotation animation
  • Keyboard control support
  • Undo and history logging
  • Included A.I. (still buggy. Anyone interested to help?)
