In this Tic-Tac-Toe variant, both players can play as both Xs and Os.
Rather than choosing X or O, one player is Order and the other is Chaos!
Order wants to create order by getting five-in-a-row (either 5 Xs or 5 Os). Chaos wants chaos by stopping all five-in-a-rows.
- The game is played on a 6×6 grid.
- Players take turns placing either Xs or Os. Both players can use either symbol.
- Order wins if there are five Xs or Os in a row.
- Chaos wins when there is a Cat’s Game.
Of course, the goal is to push students to examine the strategy. What rules can they follow to make sure that they win?
