Poof? is it working?
Posted: Mar 29, 2012, 12:56 AM

I'm very new at poof-pente. From the instructions I thought that up to 5 stones could be poofed at one time if, say, a player put a 5th stone-in-a-row between two of the other player's stones. But that doesn't seem to be happening. --> How many stones can actually be poofed at one time?

I haven't seen any poof-ing happening.

At one time up to 5 stones can be "poofed", look at the board below.



Place a stone at M10 and all 5 white stones will "poof".

Here are few of my games when poof-feature came at play (as part of a tactic, preventing one player or another from creating 5-in-a-row).





Cheers!

Thanks. I'll study this.
This is completely different from what I had envisioned. I'd thought that there would be two white stones, one on each end, and five black stones in a row between them. (or, two black stones capturing five white ones.) I never pictured this way.

I realize this thread is more than 5 years old, but I just discovered it and I figure it's never too late for analysis.

If white plays 16. N12, that's a win, right?

Yeah, I wouldn't foresee P2 lasting more than another 8 moves or so after 16. N12. Not sure if there's a quicker forced win and P2 may have a few choices as to where to play on blocks, but looks pretty lost after that move.

I don't want to play non tournament rules games. If you take one of my unrated invites, play tourney
