Entry in Table Games for author value Gary Gabriel

Id 1254
Name Pente
Description Pente was invented by Gary Gabriel in 1983, and was inspired by Ninuki-Renju. In Pente, players compete to be the first to form an orthogonal or diagonal line of five stones, or to capture ten opposing stones. Pente does not have the complex opening protocol or specific positional restrictions of Ninuki-Renju. The first player has a strong advantage, but the Pro Pente opening variation gives Black more even winning chances.
