How to play Tic Tac Take?

Are you ready to take your Tic Tac Toe skills to the next level? Then it’s time to try out Tic Tac Take!

This game is a fun twist on the classic game we all know and love. Instead of just trying to get three X’s or O’s in a row, you also have to strategize about which squares you want to take and which ones you want to leave for your opponent.

Here’s how to play:

  1. Set up the game board: Just like Tic Tac Toe, you’ll need a 3×3 grid to play on. Draw the grid on a piece of paper or use a whiteboard if you’ve got one handy.
  2. Choose your markers: Decide who will be X and who will be O. You can also choose any other symbols or shapes you want to use instead.
  3. Decide who goes first: You can flip a coin, play rock-paper-scissors, or just decide based on who won the last game of Tic Tac Toe.
  4. Take turns placing markers: Just like in Tic Tac Toe, players take turns placing their markers on the board. But in Tic Tac Take, you can also choose to “skip” a turn and not place a marker at all.
  5. Score points: Each square on the board is worth a certain number of points, depending on its position. The center square is worth the most points, followed by the corners, and then the sides. If you get three markers in a row, you score the total number of points for those squares.
  6. Block your opponent: If your opponent is about to get three in a row, you can try to block them by placing your marker in one of the squares they need. But be careful – if you block them too much, you might not be able to get three in a row yourself!
  7. Keep playing until the board is full: The game ends when all nine squares have been filled. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins!

Tic Tac Take is a great way to mix up your game night routine and challenge your brain in new ways. So grab a friend and give it a try – who knows, you might just become a Tic Tac Take champion!
