The Gomoku game playing system was designed to provide a challenge to students taking an introductory course in programing with BASIC--to write a program in BASIC which will make a move in a Japanese game called Gomoku. This system should provide experiences for the student in designing and debugging a program which would be superior to assigned programing tasks. The student plays his program against another program whose level of difficulty is controlled by the student; thus, the task is not bounded by a single opponent nor discouraging because of lack of success at any level. (Appended are an explanation of Gomoku, a discussion of the BASIC compiler, program listings, student instructions for Gomoku, job control procedures for Gomoku, and an example of a Gomoku game run.)
