Rules of the game Pente

Presentation and goal

The game of Pente is exactly the same as gomoku, except the following : in order to win, a player can either align 5 pieces in a row, as in the game of gomoku, OR eat 10 pieces from the opponent .
The capture is "sandwich" made. It means that if a player places 2 of his pieces around 2 (and only 2) opponent pieces (Horizontally, vertically or diagonally), he can eat the pieces
on the pic hereunder, white eats 4 pieces with the move q14. Actually, 2 sandwich captures are made in the same time. White eats the black pieces p13,o12 from one side, and r13, s12 on the other side.
