Pah-Tum is an ancient game which is played on a 7x7 grid. An odd number of cells are then marked as unplayable. The players then take turns placing a piece until the board is full. Points are scored for the longest lines of pieces. The one with the most points wins.

This implementation will randomly mark 5, 7, or 9 random cells as unplayable. A pie rule is also implemented to balance out possible first-move advantage.

Zotmeister 0 Let's play a game of Who Will The Random Layout Screw Over, shall we? With that said, it's not without interest.
