Tic Tac Tome: The Autonomous Tic Tac Toe Playing Book by Willy Yonkers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Think you’re pretty smart? Turn the pages to play your moves and watch as Tic Tac Tome beats you forward, backward, and diagonally. Tic Tac Tome features more than 1,400 pages, hundreds of draws and losses, and just one way for a clever reader to win. No apps, batteries, or touch screens required—Tic Tac Tome is powered by good old-fashioned book smarts. It’s deceptively simple, endlessly addictive, and (nearly) impossible to defeat. Complete with introduction and FAQs for the unfamiliar and unsure, Tic Tac Tome is the smartest book you’ll ever cross.
When Quirk Books were offering this for review, I waved my hands high in the air. This looked like a fun book that could entertain you for hours.
First I sat down with a pencil and thought I would get started, I was thinking that it was a shame that the game could only be played once. I know how to play Tic Tac Toe, just like probably most of the population but I decided to check out the rules. This was when I realised that the game can be played over and over.
This book is really clever, you can choose to start first or allow the book to begin, by starting at the front of the book or back. Then by selecting where you want to put your X, you change the page to the number in that square. The grid begins to fill up in the way you would play Tic Tac Toe.
This is a really fun, clever, brilliant book that is perfect for the coffee table and a great conversation starter for a dinner party.
I love that it can be played again and again. This is going to have prime place on my dinner table and I am sure it’s going to be a great ice breaker.
I would like to thank the publisher for sending me this copy in exchange for an honest review.
