Customer Reviews

Get tactical

Great concept, great implementation.

The basic game rules can be understood in a very short around of time (minutes).

Success depends on your ability to utilize your working memory in combination with theory of mind to analyze possible opponent moves over the span of many turns.

If you enjoy this type of thinking, you will love this game. The developers have done a great job implementing the concept efficiently.

Tic-Tac-Toe Made Fun Again!

This is a great revamp of a classic game that I can't get enough of now!

The new update makes it even better by removing coins from the game, making it easier to play multiple games at once!

Plus the new leveling system is a nice way to be able to see how much your opponents play vs. how good they are!

More challenging than you would think

I wasn't sure how someone could make tic-tac-toe challenging. But this game is very challenging and fun!

Hidden Variable Studios, just like me, is killing the competition!!!
