interesting. i play a version on wherein each player starts with 18 stones and the object is to *either* reduce your opponent to one stone remaining on the board *or* to place five of your own pieces in a row.

i guess different people play it differently. another site i've seen raises about nine different points on which no-one seems to agree about the rules of this game. :D
