HOW TO PLAY. You probably played the three-by-three version of tic tac toe as a child. This Deluxe version of flash tic tac toe offers far more.
In tic tac toe, two opponents try to be the first to have their pieces in a row on the game board. One opponent plays X's, the other plays O's.
For example, on the three-by-three tic tac toe board, the first player to have three X's or three O's in a row is the winner. The X or O "rows" can be horizontal, diagonal, or vertical to win.
You can play this version of the game either against the computer or against a human opponent.
In addition to the regular 3x3 grid, you can choose to play these advanced levels:
- 4x4, Draw 2 - First four-in-a-row wins
- 6x6, Draw 1 - Most four-in-a-rows wins
- 6x6, Draw 2 - Most four-in-a-rows wins
- 8x8, Draw 2 - Most four-in-a-rows wins
With all these options for play, the simple game of tic tac toe can actually be quite challenging!
Kudos to Anthony at ATK Solutions for designing the Flash version of such an incredibly cool Tic Tac Toe game.
The brain skills used during tic tac toe are useful during any activity where problem solving, reaction time, and analytical thinking are needed.
