Thread Modes What is the origin of the game tic tac toe?

  • The game we know now as Tic Tac Toe (also called 'Noughts and Crosses') took an earlier form in Ancient Rome called "Terni Lapilli" or “Three Pebbles at a Time.” In this version, each player only had three pebbles to use on the board and had to move them along the empty spaces in order to keep playing. Evidence of these games were found chalked all over Rome, proving how even in ancient times, humans passed the time with games of all kinds. Outside of Rome, similar Tic Tac Toe-like games appeared in ancient Egyptian and Middle Eastern civilizations as well as Native American civilizations.
