highly addictive

July 19, 2017



This is an extremely addictive two-minute, two-player game. You create your program by choosing three pre-printed tic-tac-toe moves from your deck and putting them in what you hope is the optimal order. Then you and your opponent "execute" your programs to see who comes out on top.

After the game, you'll see how your and your opponent's strategies played out and what you could have done differently, and then you'll want to play again, and again, and again)!

Fun rating: 5 out of 5

Learning rating: 4 out of 5
