Fused Games: Diced Tic-tac-toe #2, 2013
As a table game tic-tac-toe often meats the coasters… the tic-tac-toe is CHAlleNGED by a CHAlleNGED dice = Diced Tic-tac-toe #2
9 cubes are arranged in 3x3 grid. Each cube has two sides indicating “X”, two indicating “O” and two empty ones. At the beginning all cubes are placed with empty side on top.
The goal is as in the classic tic-tac-toe to arrange 3 of one’s sign in a row (vertical, horizontal, diagonal). The player who arranges the row first wins.
The Coaster Dice consists of 6 coasters each designed as side of the traditional 6 sided dice with dots from 1-6. The players shuffle the coasters and deal them as cards: 3 to each player. To make a move each player pulls on of his/her coasters and rotates a cube in one direction so many times as the dots on the coaster indicate. The players deal the cards/coasters in turn when all of them are used.
