Almost everyone has played Tic Tac Toe at some point in their life. Scribbled on paper, drawn on a blackboard, or even colored with sidewalk chalk, at least some form of the game has been around longer than us. Released yesterday, Sept. 24, is an updated version of the original called SQRD Ultimate Tic Tac Toe that gives you the simplicity of the game concept with a twist that makes it more challenging.
SQRD Ultimate Tic Tac Toe gives you nine small grids that make up one large grid. Each small grid is its own game with the large grid being the winning board. You take turns against your opponent placing your “X” into a small grid. The spot where you place your “X” inside that grid determines which grid your opponent must play their next move and vice versa.
The goal is to win a smaller grid game to take over that square. Your “X” will then be placed on that grid. Continue to take over squares in order to win Tic Tac Toe on the large board. Check out this preview of SQRD Ultimate Tic Tac Toe and click here if you cannot view it:
Harder than you think
It took a little time for me to pick up on how the game worked exactly, but now it is easier to understand and play. The challenge comes in when you want to win one of the small grid games, but doing so may put your opponent’s next move on a grid that will result in their winning that square or even the game. SQRD Ultimate Tic Tac Toe offers single-player and local multiplayer modes with online multiplayer in the works.
SQRD Ultimate Tic Tac Toe is universal and available for free on the App Store. There is an in-app purchase option of $0.99 to remove the ads.
