Day and Night

Day and Night is one of those perfect abstract games, with rules so simple, you can learn to play in a minute.   It's a n-in-a-row variant, with a few simple twists.  You can only place new stones on the dark squares, or slide from dark adjacent light squares.  Win by forming 5 orthogonally or 4 diagonally on light squares.   Read the complete rules here.

Robots:  Not too bad, but I think good human players will surpass them soon.

The back story: 
Day and Night was the winner of a design competition from issue 22 of Abstract Games magazine,  which I helped judge.
