Hi, I'm working on a five in a row game in C# and I have all set but the winning conditions which is *drums...* connecting five of the same value in a row (can be either horizontal, diagonal or vertical. The game map is stored as a 2 dimensional int array (15,15).

I suppose a good solution would be to use the latest changed "brick" in the game map to be the starting point of calculation and then make calc that grows from that point until it either finds 5 in a row (win) or no more possible entries is found.

I´m seeking guidlines/help on how to understand/make this possible.

bool five_in_a_row($square, $new_brick_color) {

  for each $direction in {North, NorthEast, East, SouthEast} {

	$a = count how many bricks of color $new_brick_color are found starting from $square+$direction along $direction

	$opposite_direction = -$direction

	$b = count how many bricks of color $new_brick_color are found starting from $square+$opposite_direction along $opposite_direction

	if ($a+$b >= 4) // because we didn't count the latest brick

	  return true;

  }

  return false;

}
