Tic Tac Toe is traditionally played on a white piece of paper using pen or pencils to mark the x’s and o’s. But many people enjoy it in different ways.

At the Doctors Office

I have to admit that my family has often played Tic Tac Toe on the white paper that covers the benches in the waiting rooms of doctor’s office. After each patient leaves, the nurses always roll up the paper and throw it away. Especially when the kids were small, we would be known to play some serious Tic Tac Toe while waiting for the doctor. The kids would think it was fun to write on the big space. It was a fun experience that made waiting much more doable.

One of our favorite variations is Super Tic Tac Toe. We cover an entire piece of paper with a grid. Then we take turns going back and forth till all the squares are filled with X’s and O’s.

How to score:

  • Rows of 3 = 1 point
  • Rows of 4 = 2 points
  • Rows of 5 = 3 points

This version takes longer and you never have to worry about the cat winning the game! Try it! You might find that you love Super Tic Tac Toe!
