    Three Pentagame sets, so you can start a community. Have one board for yourself, one for sale, and one to give away for free. As you get better at Pentagame, you want the other players to practice before you play them again, and the best way to make that happen is to provide them with a set, of course!

    Support my scientific research into Pentagame! The ultimate book on Pentagame (now in the making) already contains some 200 pages... And it's great. It tells how the game was invented, how it may have existed in antiquity as "pente grammai", and it provides an in-depth analysis of the game from opening theory over complexity analysis to end states. The results are that Pentagame has what it takes to be a classic: depth, clarity, drama, elegance and decisiveness; and that it may be a resuscitation of an antique game, since it is a timeless mathematical object of the class "classic abstract board games" anyway, that is the missing one on a pentagram shape.
