Fused Games: Slider Puzzled Tic-tac-toe, 2013
The familiar tic-tac-toe gets puzzled again.
The game is for two players and combines the rules and goals of the tic-tac-toe and the basics of the slider puzzle. 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. In order to place his symbol a player can move all squares of the slider but eventually should keep the composition he started with, plus the newly added symbol. The”X” starts first placing his symbol and leaving any other “X”s or “O”s out of the 3x3 grid. The top left of the 3x3 grid is the top left of the slider.
