Swap after 3 moves Pente?
Posted: Feb 6, 2018 10:55 PM

I just ran across a site where they seem to play swap option for Pente after P1 plays 2 stones and P2 play one. On a 15x15 grid. Since renju and swap gomoku are also options, I guess this makes a certain amount of sense. Anyone else played that variant?

Looks like they're having a tournament tomorrow. 5AM EST might be a tad early for me, but perhaps someone here from Europe wants to play? I'd offer K10 L9 N10 and see what happens...

Seems like there are daily 5 AM EST tourneys there; so far I haven't seen one get the minimum of 4 entrants. If you play there, you'll want to keep tabs on the caps score, as there doesn't appear to be an in game tally for that. Also, be ready to play... it's not uncommon for someone to come into the game room, invite you to play, cancel the invite and leave the game room in under 30 seconds!

What site is It? Those tournaments are typically too early for me as well but it would be a nice option for a restless morning.

mindoku dot com - so far, I've only seen one not cancelled due to lack of entrants and that was closer to noon eastern time, but I show up quite a few mornings to see whether they get held, so maybe we'll get one one of these mornings. I'm pente_player over there.

They have a swap gomoku Olympiad happening over there today - with 133 participants in the current tournament!
