Pente puzzle thread
Posted: Sep 20, 2022, 3:08 AM

I'm starting a consolidation thread for Pente puzzles; some were published in the old Pente newsletters or Pente Strategy books, some are on various players' websites and some are scattered around the forums. Eventually, I'd like to get them sorted by (rough) level of difficulty.

Bruce Lee and Friend win in 5 moves (Rollie Tesh)

Diagram 37 (Tom Braunlich) - win it in 4 moves instead of the 5 moves suggested in Pente Strategy II

G.G. (Rollie Tesh) win in 4

Zoeyk's PUZZLE Page (3 puzzles)

Oleg Stepanov's puzzles (each game analysis page has a puzzle at the bottom; 4 puzzles)

Scott Justice's puzzle page (4 puzzles by Scott and one by Rollie Tesh)

Pente_gon's puzzle thread (5 puzzles)

Pente_gon's retrograde analysis puzzle thread (2 puzzles)


All of the boards posted below are puzzles from the newsletters and are white to play and win in X number of (white) moves. Author's name given where known. Capture score (if any) shown. First moves for these puzzles can be found in this thread.

1. X=4 Yin-Yang





2. X=5 J.D. Rollie Tesh




3. X=4 Alladin's Lamp Rollie Tesh





4. X=4 Wrong Angle Rollie Tesh





5. X=6 Gorilla at Large Scott Justice
