3-5-7

3-5-7 is a  15 line game turn based game about turning marks red, the person to turn the last mark red loses. You can play the fully functioning game at https://threefiveseven.herokuapp.com/.

The rules to the game are simple:

  • You may turn as many marks as you want red, but they have to be in the same row.
  • You must turn at least one mark red each turn.
  • You may not turn marks back green.
  • Your turn ends when you are done making marks red.
  • You win the game when your opponent turns the last mark red.

  • Note that the multiplayer feature does not work when you play it from itch.io. You will have to play the game hosted on my website at https://hparcells.netlify.com/games/3-5-7/ or setup your own game. (see below)

    Also note that playing the game on small mobile devices will not work as scrolling is broken due to the nature of how I have the game setup. Larger mobile device screens such as tablets may work, but can not scroll.


    Setting Up a Multiplayer Server

    This game supports local multiplayer on the same device, LAN multiplayer which has to be setup. A guide can be found at https://hparcells.netlify.com/documentation/3-5-7/site/server/lan/. This game can also be publicly hosted, where anyone can join. A guide to set this up can be found at https://hparcells.netlify.com/documentation/3-5-7/site/server/public/.


    Hosting Your Own 3-5-7 Game

    This will be written for users on a Windows machine for users not wanting to use the already hosted version, and instead want to host their own. Playing Local Multiplayer on the Same Machine Download the 3-5-7.zip file, and simply open the index.html in the root directory.

    Playing Multiplayer on a LAN Network or a Public Server

    Download the 3-5-7.zip file, along with installing NodeJS. Open a command prompt at the root directory of the game and type npm install http-server. Again inside the root directory of the game after http-server is done installing, type http-server. Go to one of your browsers and type each of the IPs listed until one works. For other people to play on your network, let them use an IP that isn't 127.0.0.1.
