Rules of the game : Connect 5

Presentation of the game and objective

The rules of the game are the same as connect 6.

The differences between the 2 games are the following:

- The goal of the game is to place five more pieces in a solid row vertically, horizontally or diagonally. The game starts on an empty board
- White player starts the game and places one black piece at any intersection on the board.
- After this initial move is done, each player places two pieces at any empty intersection per move. The meaning of the initial single-piece move of the white player is to reduce the starting player advantage.
- There is a restriction in the way you place your peices at your turn. You may not place both pieces in the same line (horizontally, vertically or diagonally)

The game ends if one of the following conditions is fulfilled:

-One player places five or more pieces in a solid row vertically, horizontally or diagonally. This player wins the game.
-All intersections of the board are occupied and no player fulfills the previous condition to win. In this case the game ends as a draw.
