Head over to Math With Bad Drawings to see how to play: http://mathwithbaddrawings.com/2013/06/16/ultimate-tic-tac-toe/
Read the article. Play a round of ULTIMATE Tic-Tac-Toe with a parent. Submit the game sheet for credit, and answer the following questions on a separate sheet.
- How hard was it to keep track of the rules? Did you ever make a move that you regretted because of the board it placed your parent for his/her next move?
- Did either you or your parent discover a strategy for maximizing your chance of winning? Do you think you could build a strategy in this game or is it all based on luck?
- In regular tic-tac-toe, two competent players will always play to a draw. Do you think that is the same in Ultimate Tic-Tac-Toe? With experience, would two players usually end up tied? Why or why not?
