I will keep studying it

Thanks guys...............

meriwetherman,

I didn't get it at first either, but from flat creek*kid's example

3           4            8

2           9            2

0           0            1           plus one and minus one  each digit.

I went like this,

Make the numbers above letters so it looks like

A  D  G

E  B  H

F  I  C

The ABC is the 391 from the drawing

A,B,C going down diagonally is the number from the drawing.

D is 3 (A) + 1

E is 3(A) - 1

F is 9 (B) + 1

G is 9 (B) - 1

H is 1 (C) + 1

I is 1 (C) - 1

Hope that helps.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

It gets more and more screwed up!  The TTT has been around for years.  There are a lot of people on LP that use it, but to see it so messed up really bothers me.  Oh well, have fun.  If you find something that works more often than just picking random numbers, you have a winner even if it really isn't a true TTT.

That is what is important.  Just wish people would not call it a TTT!!!

The TTT I use is explain on my Blog page.  As Jack said, there are many ways to do the TTT and many ways to use it.  I use this one.  It is automated at another site.

Good luck!

WPB, the way you add the numbers going around the square is exacly like most of us do it.  The one problem I have (sorry I am such a stick in the mud about this) is that you call it a TTT.  TTT stands for Tic-Tac-Toe.  A game that I have played for probably 60 years or more!  There are only EIGHT ways to win.  Why call it a Tic-Tac-Toe when it isn't?  That is what bugs me!

If it works for you, then that is great.  I just don't like it being called something it isn't!  Can you tell???  LOL

9 boxes, each with a number, same format as the game TTT (Tic-Tac-Toe) so people call it that. There are two ways in TTT, the winning side which produce 8 possible ways to win, and the lossing side produce much more. It is true TTT because a true game there are two outcome; losing and winning, both create patterns which can apply to picking numbers. How people +/- within each square remains within the square and does not disrupt the 9 box formation. That's when creativity comes in, add some spice to get a different results or we all would have the same TTT boxes.

As far as originality, to have it be a true Tic-Tac-Toe one would only use X and O instead of numbers. ;)

Noughts and Crosses (Tic Tac Toe)

Considering the symmetry of the grid, there are 26,830 possible games of noughts and crosses - not bad for a three by three grid.

The player going first could potentially be faced by as many as 304 different non winning board positions in the first four moves.

I went back to the last 9 evening only draws and it worked 7 of those times.  i just

stumbled upon this by sure accident, but i also use other tools to help me pick my

numbers.  like oldest pair out,  which double is due, all odd or all even,  and i have

been charting tennessee's numbers for 2 years now, and that is what helps me.

this may not be the true tic tac toe,  but maybe if you test your state this  may help

someone.   help never hurt no one.  good luck kid.

The function of the TTT Spreadsheet is the same:

+1 & -1 are added to each position and placed in a Tic-Tac-Toe arrangement.

Diagonal

• 1 - 2 - 1
• 0 - 2 - 4
• 3 - 2 - 3

Horizontal

• 0 - 1 - 2
• 1 - 2 - 3
• 2 - 3 - 4
