    • Basic
      • Create a row of 3 or 4 before your opponent to win.
      • Stop your opponent from forming a row to end the game in a draw.
    • Strategy
      • General
        • Keep the board symmetrical.
          • Make sure you have one of your marks on either side of the board.
          • This will help increase your chances of winning.
        • Try to build on one side when the center space is taken.
          • If your opponent lays their next mark on the other side, you can use it to clinch a victory.
        • Force a draw
          • It’s the next best thing to winning.
          • It takes a lot of strategy to force a draw from your opponent, so it’s more challenging that simply winning.
        • 5×5 grid
          • When playing the 5×5 grid a player only needs to make a run of 4 in a row to win.
          • When playing try to use the squares diagonally one in from the corners as they give you many play options between vertical, horizontal, and diagonal runs of 4.
          • Be sure to look at diagonals to ensure you do not accidentally leave a 4-in-a-row opportunity open.
      • For X
        • The standard move is to go for the center. This gives you a greater chance of winning.
        • Go for the corners. This will force your opponent to play defensively.
        • Avoid laying any non-blocking moves on non-corner spaces.
      • For O
        • Play defensively until you gain an advantage:
          • Take the center if they take a corner, or take a corner if they take the center.
          • You can increase your chances to force a draw or capitalize on a blunder if you focus on blocks.
        • See if you can block your opponent’s moves each time.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for people of all ages who like tic tac toe.
