Tic-Tac-Toe made by Neave Games

Tic-Tac-Toe is the classic example of a game that is mathematically impossible to win if both players play perfectly (check out the movie War Games). 

Game Rules:

Connect three X ’s or O ’s.  Place one piece per turn in the 3 by 3 grid.

Math Skills:

Calculation - Determine all the possible moves and responses and so forth.  This is a great exercise in simple calculation and visualization, and will help your math abilities in general.

Fun Tips:

Control the middle.  The center piece is critical.  After the center piece, just find a way to set up two in a row in two different directions.  This is the classic way to win this game.  On defense, just guard against this tactic and you’ll tie every time.
