Play The Classic Tic-Tac-Toe Game


Did you know that you could play the classic Tic Tac Toe game without losing? Although the following method may not guarantee that you will always win, the least that can happen is you will end up in a draw.

In the first strategy, you will decide who will go first in making a mark on the 3×3 square grid. Next is you must know the specific space where you will put your first mark. There are actually defined spaces and moves that is acknowledge in this game namely:  the Center, the space in the middle; the Edges, the spaces surrounding the center, the Corners, the spaces which is bordered by the 2 Edge squares. A player can also make a counter-attack on his opponent by making a move that stops or block’s the other player’s intention to win the game.

If and when you are the first player in this game, you have choices on whether to put your first mark. First is either you put your mark on the center or any of the corner spaces. Bear in mind not to ever try to mark the other spaces found on the edge. If your first move is by marking the center, the other player will either mark the edges or any corners. If in the event that they mark any space on the edge, on your next turn put a mark on the corners that are farthest from your opponent’s mark. If they try to block your attempt then you will now have two chances of winning the game. If in case they won’t block you then you will still win at the end of the game. On the other hand, if the other player’s first move is to mark a corner, you should put a mark on a space where all your marks will form a diagonal line. Your opponent’s next move will surely be marking an edge which will also give you two chances of winning the game. If not, then the game will end in tie or draw.

If you have chosen to mark a corner as your first step, the other player will be left with two choices. Your opponent will either mark the center or any other space. If they mark the center, you must choose a space where your mark must form a diagonal line. If they choose to mark any other space, you must go back and find your first mark and choose a vertical or horizontal line where the other player doesn’t have a mark. Then place your mark at the corner of your selected line. These are just some of the ways how you can easily win in the game of Tic Tac Toe.
