Gaming is a passion for many. Kumoku is one of those challenging board games available for Apple users. The goal of playing this game is to get nine pieces in 3*3 array. It could be diagonals of 3 boards, or the same lines of 3 boards and more. Once the player completes one row or column or diagonal with 3 x’s or o’s, you score one point against it.

You have two options to select your opponent from. It can be you against the computer. It is not always that the computer wins! And the second option is that you can select your own partner, it could be a distant friend connected to you through the same application.
