How To Win Tic Tac Toe & Invincible Game Strategy
There are only 125,168 games of Tic-Tac-Toe. It is possible to never be beaten, if you know the right strategy.
The player who goes first will win about twice as often as the player that goes second. Try to go first.
The trick is to avoid the edges. The corners and the centre are safest moves.
If player one moves in the corner for the first move, player two must take the center.
If you take three corners, you have three options. This is also a good tactic.
Here’s a winning strategy where you can win or tie every single Tic Tac Toe/Noughts and Crosses game!
If you get the first move place your piece in any corner.
If the competitor places their piece in any position other than the center square you will win.
Place your piece in an adjacent or opposing corner and keep working the corners until you have 2 options to win, one of which they block and the other you play.
If the competitor picks the middle spot you place your second play diagonally from the first play.
If they then pick a side you will go back and forth and end up in a tie.
If they pick another corner then you lay in the remaining corner and are guaranteed a win.
This game was featured prominently in the cult classic movie War Games, where they have the computer play itself to try to learn that the game is unwinnable to try to stop a nuclear war.
