Math with Bad Drawings
An interesting, long-form, strategic take on Tic Tac Toe
I love when people take games we all know and love and add a twist to make everything interesting again. Tic Tac Toe isn't a very good game to begin with, unless you're trying to kill time at Red Robin and are drawing on the table cloth with your kids, but the game can turn into an interesting game of long term strategy with a few shifts to the rules.
Take a look at the new rules of Tic Tac Toe on this blog post, and give it a try. It looks simple, and it's very easy to play, but the strategy deep much quicker than you think. You're effectively pushing the other player around the board with your moves, and you have to look a few moves down the line for the killing blow.
This is neat stuff, and you likely have everything you need to try it right now. Go play!
