Gomoku appears to have originated in China. From there it went to Korea and finally Japan where it has developed into its present form. It is an uncomplicated board game and its addictive nature can be enjoyed by players of all abilities. Gomoku is a simple yet challenging game involving placement of stones on a board to achieve five stones in a row. Superb views with a choice of board layouts and piece sets coupled with a terrific Gomoku engine mean this is pleasing to the eye and challenging to the mind!
Cascata's version of Gomoku allows you to play on 3 different sized boards, 11 by 11, 13 by 13 and the modern 15 by 15 boards. This allows for a full range of games from the quicker and easier games for beginners though to longer and more complex games for the experienced player. Extra features enabling you to play against a friend, or one of the six computer levels and the ability to take back moves and ask for hints mean this is an ideal companion for quality leisure time.
