>Who can make a line first in tic-tac-toe, also known as X’s and O’s.
How to play tic-tac-toe or X’s and O’s:
You will need two players, paper and a pen or pencil. Draw a grid like above. One player is ‘X’ and the other is ‘O’. One player goes first and draws their letter in one of the spaces. The next player then draws their letter in a grid. Take turns until someone makes a line, or you are out of spaces. To make a line, you have to get three of your letter in a row–not blocked by another player’s letter. The lines can be straight across, straight down or at a diagonal. In the above example, ‘O’ won as they made a straight line up and down.
