We’re planning a very different holiday next week and new game would be a great addition to our celebration!
Something offline and familiar that has a twist.
|You might already knowÂ how to playÂ tic tac toe.Â
TheÂ set up is similar to tic tac toe but the variation in the rules makes the game a different kind of challenge. You only place three markers like small cups, coins, or dried beans. Anything with two sides will work along with a sheet of paper and the lines for the board.
After all six are placed, you can slide your marker to an adjacent open space horizontally or vertically but not diagonally. Like tic tac toe the object is to get three in a row. The strategies that might work for traditional tic tac toe just don’t guarantee a win. There might even be a stalemate. All is explained in their rules for Three in a Row.
I hope you enjoy a variation on a classic game and have a safe holiday!
