Pente is the English name for the Asian game ni-nuki, which itself
is a version of the game go-moku. The game is a variant of the well
known five in a row. Placing five stones in a row is one way to win,
the other is to capture five pairs of the opponents stones.
Pente can run in three different modes: X, curses or text. You can
play against the computer or another human, and there is also support
for playing over a network.
