Cheating of any kind in a tournament at is unacceptable, and will not be tolerated. All tournaments games will be monitored. We are all just having fun, why does anyone need to cheat? You will be immediately disqualified from a tournament if you are caught cheating. If you really want to be disqualified though, here is what you should do:

  1. Enter the tournament with more than one ID. If a player has more than one user IDs the player should play with the ID that has the most games played.
  2. Get assistance from any other person, computer software, notes, books, game transcripts, or databases.
  3. Move pieces (stones) around on any physical or computer-based Pente board in order to determine their moves. If you has difficulty in seeing the stones on the Pente board, you may keep the game position on any other board of your choosing while the game is progressing, but you must not vary the position from the actual game position in order to determine possible outcomes of moves.
  4. Show poor conduct or sportsmanship.
