If you find yourself in a 6-6 tie, and you wish to use the 1-1-1-1-1 move, simply enter only 4 cells instead of 5.
There is now an experimental 6×6 board variant. The rules may change. As it stands, the +4 victory does not apply- and the only victory condition that has changed is the other numerical one. You must claim 12 total plots instead of 7 (this is the rule that may be revised). Other than that, 2×2 farmsteads and lines of 4 in a row still count as a victory.
