Ultimate Tic-Tac-Toe

Tic Tac ToeIf you’re like most dads, you’ve probably tried playing tic-tac-toe with your kids. You also probably didn’t keep at it: the game’s strategies are so limited that, probably your kids got bored quickly, or they caught on that you’ve been letting them win.

It’s time to try Ultimate Tic-tac-toe. Instead of a single, regular 3×3 board, this beefed version is played on a 3×3 grid of 3×3 boards. The gimmick is, your opponent’s choice of move forces you to play your turn on one of the 9 boards, and vice versa. The player to win three boards in a single row wins. Talk about adding a dimension to the game.

To see the rules to this simple but addictive pen-and-paper game, google “Ultimate tic-tac-toe”, or  follow this link.
