{CB1}Lukeyman February 22 2006 6:04 PM EST

Ok, I will give $5,000 to the first one to beat me in a game of Tic Tac Toe on MSN.

You send $500 to Banky, and we play, if I win, I keep $500.
If I lose, you win 5k!

Best 2 out of 3. Post here if you want to play, and Cm me your email. Or CM me if you want to play and your email :p

Bring it on!

what about draws?

{CB1}Lukeyman February 22 2006 6:09 PM EST

Draws, we will keep going until someone wins.

Ex. If I have 1 win and you have 2 wins, and we draw the next 2 rounds, then we keep going, if you get another point, then you win, if i get another, then we keep going until the next point.

Sound right?

/me points and laughs at Blarg - getting beat at Tic Tac Toe !!?

AdminShade February 23 2006 2:12 PM EST

lukey cheats :p

{CB1}Lukeyman February 23 2006 2:16 PM EST

I do not cheat, although, i think he just gave up, after 30 rounds, it kinda gets tiring.

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] February 23 2006 2:35 PM EST

I had 100 straight draws against someone and that was playing it on paper, you think 30 on a computer is tiring?

{CB1}Lukeyman February 23 2006 2:37 PM EST

haha, we were on it for about 2 hours

Blarg February 23 2006 7:19 PM EST

i did give up, i just didn't care anymore

2 hours of playing Tic Tac Doe to win $5k seems a waste of time to me.

maulaxe February 23 2006 7:25 PM EST

is the number of possible tic-tac-toe combinations small enough to be handled by a brute force/backtracking algorithm?

if anyone doesn't know off hand, I'll probably try this when I have time (sometime after the end of this quearter probably)

There are 765 different positions, 26,830 possible games, and, ignoring symmetry, 255,168 possible games.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 24 2006 12:13 AM EST

wow...To think of the things we pay people to find out for us...lol

{CB1}Lukeyman February 25 2006 8:22 PM EST

Beat Hakai, 3-1 with 7 ties, nice and short.
