Go Bang is a straightforward strategy game. The object is to get five of your pieces in a row before your opponent does. Black always goes first and will generally be the one that wins unless you can figure a way to start stacking your pieces in rows and columns without letting the opponent get their five in a row first. It's not easy and takes a lot of time to figure out how to do it, but pretty soon you'll be outsmarting the computer. If you want to be black in order to go first, you have to switch your mode to Human vs. Computer. There is also player vs. player via online interaction.
