    You should definitely consider playing GoMoku. It is an extremely instense game and requires a lot of skill and intelligence. Given that you're going to have a board and stones of your own, it would be the only logical choice to make. I know people see "5 in a row" and probably think it's like tictactoe, but it is much more like chess. Give it a shot. You'll love it.

    I personally wonder what other people's opinions of intelligence are.
    I'd say there are three components: Knowledge, Experience and Intelligence.

    All components must be balanced, or one will look stupid.

    Knowledge without the ability to conclude a better way next time the same situation arises looks foolish.

    Intelligence without the facts to base decisions on looks childish.
    ( which isn't a bad thing for a child that has neither knowledge nor experience "by design". But you don't want to get caught looking childish in a business decision meeting the day after your 50th birthday. )

    Experience without intelligence looks dumb. Anyone can get experience given enough time. The important thing is to use it.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
