Renju Master

Renju Master | Abstract Board Games | Scoop.it

Renju Master is a freeware that allows the user to play with the computer. The software is very intelligent and very fast thanks to its advanced AI arithmetic. It also supports many other playing modes such as “USER vs USER”, “PC vs PC” (demo) and Email mode. It supports advanced rules that restrict black side to make the game fairer and more challenging.

Yannick Kilberger's insight:

Nice game, numerous strength levels and an interesting "challenge mode". Plays gomoku unless you chose to restrict black's moves.
