I've written a version of the game called Gomoku.
Everything works as it should. Now I have to do the following:
I must 'calculate' the number of possible moves from a random given position.
So let's say that we have a 5 by 5 board. How many possible moves are there?
(To win you must have 5 times the colour black or white in a row, column or diagonal).
I think that it resembles the MiniMax (?) algortihm used in Tic Tac Toe.
The problem now is that I just don't know how to do it...
