Giant bomb, let's play Tic tac toe.

#1 Edited by BestUsernameEver (4825 posts) -

Rules, All of you against me. Out of three games, if the community wins, I choose the users who beat me, and apply the prize you suggest. You don't need to do anything with the picture, just comment below to beat me. Example : I choose bottom left, then I come back, put whoever's circle in, and next to the circle, the user who made the move. If you all beat me, the user's on the tic tac toe, get the prize. Ready?
Suggest a feasible prize in the comments if someone wins.

Alright, lets try a faster way, and also, just copy and paste your move along with what you want the prize to be.

You could've had a guaranteed win if you'd gone top right.
#32 Posted by dbz1995 (4790 posts) -
@ashogo:  No he couldn't have-an O would then go in bottom left, and O's would win.
#33 Posted by ashogo (944 posts) -
@dbz1995: well I'll be. And I thought I was too old to ever lose at tic tac toe.
#34 Edited by dbz1995 (4790 posts) -

Here's how it works:
 
1) Player plays in centre
2) Player plays in a corner
3) Player plays in a space adjacent to the centre
 
If you do this and then play according to common sense, every match should be a tie from what I know. If not, the play who plays in centre should win. The theory isn't completely right-number 3 can alternate around-but 2 and 1 are pretty much set in stone. Either way, there is a clear disadvantage for the person who plays second.
 
BestUsernameEver, I'll give you a set of five.

I was really confused when ashogo said that, because I thought, well o's would win in the bottom left. So now I know I'm not crazy. It's hard to lose when it's such a public match, and potential prizes are involved.
