Tic tac toe board game for kids in natural wood sheeshum and polished in black to make it look elegant! Famous wood artisans of Uttar Pradesh in north India have handcrafted this pedagogical board for kids making it as much an objet de art as a game. Tic-tac-toe is a paper-and-pencil game for two players, dark and light marbles, 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. Players soon discover that best play from both parties leads to a draw (often referred to as cat or cat's game). Hence, young children most often play tic tac toe games. Because of the simplicity of Tic-tac-toe, it is often used as a pedagogical tool for teaching the concepts of goodsportsmanship and the branch of artificial intelligence that deals with the searching of game trees. Despite its apparent simplicity, Tic-tac-toe requires detailed analysis to determine even some elementary combinatory facts, the most interesting of which are the number of possible games and the number of possible positions. A position is merely a state of the board, while a game usually refers to the way a terminal position is obtained.
