I thought of a silly game, combining (i)go and gomoku(narabe).
For those that are not familiar, gomokunarabe (meaning line up 5 stones) is a game that is played on a goban, with go stones, alternating between the players, where the goal is to get 5 stones in a row (horizontally or diagonally). It’s like connect four five without gravity.
My game shall henceforth be known as igomokunarabe, also know as gomokunarabaduk in Korean (because why not create stupid puns for a stupid game). The rules are simple:
- It’s just normal go, but each time you complete 5 stones in a row, you gain 10 points!
Gain 10x your normal score by crawling on the second line! Build a B2 Bomber that is an actual tactical bomber, especially if it’s floating in the middle of the board without any enemy stones around! Get crazy high scores by playing out ladders!
