I came across Ultimate Tic Tac Toe in 2013 through the blog “Math with Bad Drawings” and downloaded an app to start playing it.
I played it for a while and found that it has all of the characteristics of a classic strategy board game like chess or draughts/checkers; it has few rules, it’s difficult to master and it’s addictive.
One difference though is that it didn’t have a board game format. It existed initially using pen and paper and then though various smartphone and tablet apps.
The game deserved a great format so I set about designing it.
The result is squared and I hope you enjoy it.
