In this article, you can read about the basic rules of the game Cinco Linko and learn how to play. The object of the game is to be the first player to connect five tiles in a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

Setup and Gameplay

Give each player a stack of tiles. Pick one player to go first who places one tile in the middle of the table. Then play proceeds clockwise.

On your turn, lay down a tile so that it is adjacent to a flat edge of at least one other tile. You may not lay down a tile corner to corner. The first player to connect five in a row wins. If you run out of tiles in your stack and no winner has emerged then on your turn instead of placing a new tile you must move one of your tiles already in play to a new location using the same placement rules as before. When moving a tile you must also always make sure that the surrounding tiles are still properly connected.
