What is tic tac toe & history:

"Noughts and Crosses" redirects here. For the series by Malorie Blackman"

Tic-tac-toe (or Noughts and crosses, Xs and Os) is a paper-and-pencil game for

two players, X and O, who take turns marking the spaces in a 3×3 grid. The player

who succeeds in placing three respective marks in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal

row wins the game.An early variant of it was played in the Roman Empire, around the first century BC. It was called Terni Lapilli and instead of having any number of pieces, each player only had three, thus they had to move them around to empty spaces to keep playing. The game's grid markings have been found chalked all over Rome. However, according to Claudia Zaslavsky's book it And Other Three-In-A Row Games from Ancient Egypt to the Modern Computer, it could originate back to ancient Egypt.[2] Another closely related ancient game is Three Men's Morris which is also played on a simple grid and requires three pieces in a row to finish.[3]

*The different names of the game are more recent . The first print reference to "Noughts and crosses", the British name, appeared in 1864. In his novel "Can You Forgive Her", 1864, Anthony Trollope refers to a clerk playing "tit-tat-toe". The first print reference to a game occurred in 1884, but referred to "a children's game played on a slate, consisting in trying with the eyes shut to bring the pencil down on one of the numbers of a set, the number hit being scored". it may also derive from the name of an old version of backgammon first described in 1558. The U.S. renaming of Noughts and crosses as Tic tac toe occurred in the 20th century.[4]

On Hollywood Squares, nine celebrities filled the cells of the it grid; players put symbols on the board by correctly agreeing or disagreeing with a celebrity's answer to a question. Variations of the show include Storybook Squares and Hip Hop Squares. The British version was Celebrity Squares.

players put symbols up on the board by answering questions in various categories, which shuffle after each player's turn.

In Beat the Teacher, contestants answer questions to win a turn to influence a it grid.

On The Price Is Right, several national variants feature a pricing game called "Secret X," in which players must guess prices of two small prizes to win Xs (in addition to one free X) to place on a blank board. They must place the Xs in position to guess the location of the titular "secret X" hidden in the center column of the board and form a it line across or diagonally (no vertical lines allowed). There are no Os in this variant of the game.

On Minute to Win It, the game Ping has one contestant playing the game with nine water-filled glasses and white and orange ping-pong balls, trying to get three in a row of either color. They must alternate colors after each successful landing and must be careful not to block themselves.
