A strategy board game that is a variation of Gomoku. Pente was invented in 1977 on checkerboard table cloths at a Pizza parlor in Stillwater, Oklahoma called the Hideaway. The object is to place 5 stones in a row or capture 5 pairs of your opponents stones.
While waiting for my pizza I learned how to play Pente. Thirty years later I still have not mastered it.
