Here are some points to consider:
- Pente has a faster pace to it than chess. A game typically lasts 15 minutes. If you find chess too slow, try Pente.
- Very little can go wrong with the game: You have a board with a 19 by 19 grid, and two sets of coloured stones. You are unlikely to use all the stones, so if you lose one or two, you will probably never miss them. If you do miss them -- almost anything can substitute for the missing pieces.
- Pente is played with the same board and the same pieces as Go. This means that if you want a fancier set, or if you lose sufficiently many pieces so as to warrent buying a new set, you can always buy a Go set and use it to play Pente.
- The same board, the same pieces, are the basis for Go, Pente, and Go-Muko, so in fact, all you need to do is look up the rules in any of the many sites on the internet and use the same set for any of these games.
