I used to play naughts and crosses all the time when I was a bit younger. It seemed to have gotten boring, especially since I know the tricks, and I also know when I'm going to end up in a tie. I don't play anymore, even when people want me to play with them.
Comments: Interesting game. Anybody can learn it easily. This is the most simplest game I have ever played.
My daughter loves this game, though she doesn't win much -- mainly because she loses concentration. Once you have the pattern down, it's all wins and ties, but it's fun to play with kids to see if they can detect the method.
There is ONE trick to win no matter what you mark! I cannot tell you the trick, it is a secret, but when you preform it, the are two ways to win! If the opponent removes one by tricking you, there is still one left! :D

I either win or draw too. I learned one strategy in my teen years and then I either won or it was a draw. I used to play it at church during the sermon with someone who sat next to me when I was a child. It passed the time till bible classes.
Its always fun coming back and playing a child hood game. Especially when you figure out the trick to it and can beat the computer ever time.
