Pente is a strategy board game created in 1977 by Gary Gabrel. It is an Americanized version of the Japanese game ninuki-renju, a variant of renju or gomoku which is played on a Go board of 19 x 19 intersections with white and black stones. Pente allows captures while renju and gomoku do not. Ninuki-renju and Pente have the same capturing rules, but Pente added a new opening rule. In the nineteenth century, gomoku or go-ban was introduced to Britain where it was known as "Go Bang".[1]
