SlowRenju has been developed since January 2012, which is based on iteratively deepening alpha-beta pruning algorithm with a transposition table. SlowRenju has been participating in the Gomoku/Renju AI programming tournament Gomocup since 2013, which is one of the more famous computer Gomoku/Renju tournament now.
Gomoku, also known as Five In a Row, is a game playing on a 15×15 (or maybe larger) board. Two persons put their own stones on the crossing of the board alternatively, and the game ends with a player winning by creating a line of five stones horizontally, vertically or diagonally, or with a draw by the board filled up with stones. There are also some variants of Gomoku, among which the most famous one is Renju, in which the black player (the player who moves first) loses by creating a double-three, a double-four or an over-line.
SlowRenju supports the rules of Freestyle Gomoku, Standard Gomoku and Renju, on the board sizes between 5 and 20.
