Connect6: Image of the game

Origin

The Connect6 game was introduced by Dr. I-Chen Wu in 2003. As he tells in his web site, the game was motivated while playing Go-moku when his daughter suggested playing it differently by letting both black and white put two stones in each turn.

Description

It is usually played on a standard go board, but in theory the size of the board can be infinite.

Rules are similar to connect 5, except the two following differences:

  • The goal of the game is to align six or more consecutive stones, instead of five.
  • Players put two stones in every turn, instead of one.

Objective

The objective is to make a straight line (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) with 6 stones of the own colour.

How the game goes on

The player who uses the black pieces starts the game, and both players play alternatively.

Moves entail in placing two stones on empty squares of the board. The stones inside the board cannot be moved again.

In the opening move, black plays first and puts only one black stone on one unoccupied intersection. So, each player has one more stone placed on the board after doing the move; thanks to this simple rule, and unlike Go-moku and Renju, this game do not need to impose some extra rules to be fair enough.
