I apologize that the program is edit-protected. This is all because I couldn't get my link cable to work, and found the worst possible way to transfer the file to the computer. Anyway, it should be simple enough to switch off.

Sweet!

Talking about 3d tic-tac-toe, has anyone ever tried playing it mentally? As in, two people visualize the board and announce moves out loud? It's tricky, but lots of fun! Smile

haha, one day during a rather boring class a friend and I came up with a 4-d tic-tac-toe game. It was absolutely impossible to imagine! It looked a bit like this:

Unfortunately, in higher dimensions you need at least a side length of 4 for the game to be interesting. Even 3D games otherwise have a simple winning strategy for the first player; in the 4D example you give, the first player can win in 4 moves.

In fact, I suspect that for any side length, there comes a dimension at which the game is trivial; with the odd-numbering sides being less interesting, of course, because they have a center spot which the first player is bound to take.

Nice game! Too bad I was never good at 2D tic-tac-toe, and apparently not at 3D either....the AI slaughtered me >_<.

Yeah, we eventually figured that out. However, beyond 3d, it was just too hard to imagine anything more than a length of 3. It was funny, though, because it made the game more like chess. Utterly complicated, with the end results unknown until it's actually almost over.
