Tic Tac Toe is a “zero-sum game”, meaning the gain of one player will signify the loss of the other. In the event both players will play perfectly, the game ends in a draw. Here are the most useful strategies and tactics when you play Tic Tac Toe game.

When you begin to play tik tak toe

Play your first X in a corner

In this example, the player who has the Xs will play first to force a win. When you are the first to play, place your X in a corner square. If your opponent does not play the center square, you are most certainly assured to win! Play your second X in the center square to force your opponent to block you. Then place your third X in one of the border squares and next to the square where you made your first move. By doing this, you have a double winning move and your opponent will only be able to block one of them. Giving you the victory!**

If your opponent takes the center

When your opponent follows by choosing the center square as their first move, you may still have a chance of winning if your opponent makes an error later in the game. Otherwise, a perfect series of moves by each player will end in a draw.

If your opponent takes one of the other corner squares, you can be sure to win. Play the last corner available and you will have a double chance for victory!

Your opponent makes the first move of the game by placing their O in a corner square

In this case, and when you're not the starting player, you still have the opportunity to end in a draw if you don’t make any mistakes. When your opponent places an O in a corner square and as their first move, systematically put your X in the center square. If your opponent places their second O in one of the remaining corner squares, do not place your X in a corner, but rather in one of the squares on an edge. This will force your opponent to react rather than attack. You can then expect to win if your opponent makes a mistake, otherwise the game will end in a force draw.

When your opponent begins the game by making their first move on an edge at Tic Tac Toe

  1. If your opponent is an inexperienced player, chances are that they will start on an edge.
  2. Place your X in the center square immediately
  3. If your opponent reacts by placing their second O opposite from their first move (creating an O-X-O), then place your second X in a corner square.
  4. If your opponent places their third O in a square that blocks your winning move (creating a X-X-O diagonal), then make your next move by placing your X into another corner square, enabling you to block your opponent and to create a double diagonal. This will ensure your victory! Have a look at “replays” and “live games” from other players and sharpen your senses at Tic Tac Toe!
