Tic tac toe is a game that has been around for centuries. It can be played by two or more people who take turns marking the spaces in a 3×3 grid. The player with pieces remaining, or who cannot move due to being blocked, loses the game. In this blog post, we will cover some of the best tic tac toe combinations for you to try out on your next opponent!
This tic tac toe combination is the most basic of all, and you should always remember that it works! This can be used if you are not planning on making any other moves just to force your opponent into trying to complete their own tic tac toe.
The Y tic tac toe combination is a move that combines both X and O into one! This is best used as a last resort against someone who is not paying attention to the order of the pieces. If they aren’t, this can give you some breathing space as it will appear as though you’ve completed your own tic tac toe.
This is not a valid move in normal tic tac toe, but it can be done in combination chess. As an added bonus, this will often fool your opponent into thinking they have won the game.
Three diagonal columns together with three squares between them
The trinity is such a powerful move that it cannot be completed by a single-player alone. It is best used when you are in a stalemate with your opponent, and requires three people to make; hence the name. If it is completed by two of the players, then they win. It cannot be countered or blocked, but if one player has moved their piece into the square that stands between them and their opponent (the ‘gap’ square), then it cannot be used.

The trinity is an exceptionally powerful move, to the point where it can turn a game around in seconds. However, there are several occasions when the trinity will fail to work (for example, if one of your opponents has placed his piece on a gap square), so you must exercise caution as to when you play it.
Two rows have two in a column and the third is empty:
Two diagonals have two in a row and the third is empty:
Both players follow their respective player’s rules. One may not place three consecutive pieces on three consecutive squares without playing consecutively. After completing your turn, it would be the opponent’s turn. The game ends when all squares are filled, or when one player cannot move. The winner is the player who has three of their symbols in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row.
Then you must follow your ‘player’ rules (that means no forcing an opponent to be X). It should be noted that if someone says to play it once, they usually mean for the location of the X’s and O’s to be fixed.
