Tic Tac Toe has progressed somewhat since you played it as a child as it can now also be played on the internet against the computer. It is also commonly referred to as noughts and crosses and there is no prize for guessing why!
This is only a two person game with player staking turns to place either an X or O in a 3 by 3 grid. The objective of the game (in case you grew up in Mars) is to be the first player to place three of their marks in a row either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. The first person to do so, wins the game.
