Tic-Tac-Toe

Published:

I'm moving this up.

A TTT (Tic-Tac-Toe) is a square that I think most of us are familiar with.  Simple game of placing Xs and Os into a 3X3 square with the person getting 3 in a row becoming the winner (if they do!)

1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9

There are only 8 winners (3 horizonal, 3 vertical and 2 diagonal).

Here on LP a few people have been posting what they call "TTT", but it has a LOT more winners than 8!  Some will claim a "hit" if the 3 digits are anywhere in the square.  Well, with a possible 9 digits, they are covering 84 possible combos! 

Some claim that the numbers must touch to qualify as a hit in the Puzzle or Box.  That is what I am currently using.  So, in the Puzzle/Box above, 156 qualifies.  What I like are the normal TTT 8 combos along with triangles like 153 in the above example.  539 would be another, etc.

There are a lot of ways to construct the square.  I'm not going to get into that right now.  There are plenty of examples on LP...do a search for "TTT".  The way I look at my boxes, is look at the square and see if one of  YOUR  favorites jumps out at you! 

I'm hoping this helps.
