Bovo is a Gomoku (from Japanese 五目並べ – lit. “five points”) like game for two players, where the opponents alternate in placing their respective pictogram on the game board.
The objective of the game is to connect five of your own pieces in an unbroken row vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Because the first player always has an advantage over the second player, Bovo will alternate the players, switching them every new game.
The game is also known as Connect Five, Five in a row, X and O, Naughts and Crosses.
This is free and open source software.
- Players take turn to place their respective marks on the playing board.
