Mod X

Mod X is a twist on the familiar n-in-a-row game.  In this case n=5, and the "5" patterns are five-in-a-line, five-in-an-X and five-in-a-+.  In addition to the  multiple shapes, there are neutral "joker" pieces that can be used to complete any shape.  Finally, making a scoring shape scores a point, but that point can be un-scored if the other player makes another scoring shape that uses it.

There are a few subtle points in the official rules about the placement of the joker pieces.

Robots:  the preliminary report is that the bot is pretty fierce.

The back story: 
I'm always shopping for new variants of established themes.  Mod X jumped out as a superior example.
