Reverse Tick-Tack-Toe

Materials

  • One pencil per player
  • Paper

Directions

  1. This game requires two players.
  2. One plays Xs; the other plays Os.
  3. Draw a tick-tack-toe grid (two vertical lines intersected by two horizontal lines to form nine equal spaces) on paper.
  4. The object of the game is to avoid claiming three spaces in a row.
  5. To start the game, one player writes her letter in the center space.
  6. The other player then writes her letter in any empty space.
  7. The players take turns claiming spaces in this way until one player (the loser) claims three spaces in any vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row.
