The ancient Asian game of 'Go' is called 'Gomoku Narabe' in Japan, meaning 'five in a row'. The object of the game is to simply get five of your chips in a row. Sounds simple, but there are endless strategies and philosophies to this game. The game presented in Gomoku Narabe Renju is a combination of 'Go-Moku Narabe' and 'Ninuki Renju' - a synthesis of two similar board games that use a Go board where the objective is to make five in a row.
