It is not possible to get five pieces in a row if the other robot always starts the game Sad Sad Sad
I've played that silly boardgame in the shitty cafe for thousands of times now and just can't win!
Is there some strategy or code to win it?

There are plenty of video walkthroughs on youtube already so I would recommend checking them.

Don't lose your cool. It took me more than an hour to beat that game too Cheesy

And yes, there's already a how-to video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2m6NhwjFuXU

I found that if I placed a few at random and kind of far apart it threw the computer off and I could start strategically placing them without it noticing so much....

1 hint: try to make it 3-3

Japanese and Chinese people play five in a row a lot. You can win the game in 30 seconds by using their strategy.

I too am stuck on this game and, after over a hundred tries, I have given up.  Too bad as I was enjoying the game up to this point.

Yes, I have looked at the  game help which is no help for this.  And yes, I have seen the YouTube solutions to this game.  I have charted them out carefully and tried them multiple times.  My game does not follow the same patterns as the YouTube solutions, so they do not work for me.

I've tried every approach I can think of and have failed every time.  :-(

Look through the rest of the Q&A section of the forum and you'll find other comments regarding the "5 in a row" problem that may help you.    Wink

(specifically read Lamkin's gambit: 5 in a row after 9 moves)

may be you are simply forgetting the arcade game book (in the inventory, on the far right)

every time you can't solve a riddle, you can play Space Invaders, and if you gain at least 1000 points, you receive the solution

I used this trick in the tower room (at the end of the game), were I was unable to solve the top section of the game with strings of balls

I want to say that I hate arcades, and I am very poor in this kind of game, but I was able to win Space Invaders using a hidden trick ...
