Gameplay

Tic-Tac-Toe is a two-player board game. Each turn, a player adds a mark to a 3x3 board, and the game ends when three marks in a row (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) are made or the board is full.

Isomorphisms

Some games are isomorphic to Tic-Tac-Toe.

Pick15 (Number Scrabble)

There are numbers from 1 to 9.

Each turn, a player chooses an untaken number and wins if a subset of his numbers sums to 15.

Words

There are 9 words: eat, bee, less, air, bits, lip, soda, book, lot.

Each turn, a player chooses an untaken word and wins if three of his words have the same letter.

Time Control

Intermissions last up to 30 seconds, ending early if all players are ready.

Each turn lasts up to 20 seconds, with automatic random moves. Unused turn time cannot be carried to future turns. There is only a turn timer, not a game timer.

Options

A random move will be made after the turn timer expires.

Checked (default: off)
