Another assignment for my Video Game Development class included modifying a board game. Here is an alternate version of Tic-Tac-Toe I like to call Tic-Tac-Throw:
Tic-Tac-Throw would essentially be a modified version of Tic-Tac-Toe, in which, the gridded board is raised so that it is now 3-Dimensional. It would be an open-faced cube with nine slots. Two people can play against each other, or there can be two teams. The players must try and throw their team’s balls, labelled either “X” or “O”, into the slots in the gridded cube, much like how Beer Pong is played. Players will alternate turns until one side gets three of their balls in a row.
- As there is a chance that someone might make it into a space that is already occupied, opposing players can take over an already captured slot to lower chances of there being a tie.
- If one side makes three in a row, opposing players are still given one final turn so that they may try to cancel out the other team’s win.
- If both teams somehow end up with three in a row after rule number 2, then the game ends in a tie.
- (Extra Rule) If you miss, take a shot.
Here is a visual representation of what the board and pieces would look like:
