I ran across the game of Wild Tic Tac Toe while researching Tic Tac Toe variants for my classroom. Wild Tic Tac Toe is the same as regular tic tac toe, except that on your turn you may place either an X or an O – your choice – in an empty cell. If this results in three-in-a-row with either symbol, then you win!
I had already printed and laminated a set of giant tic tac toe pieces for my classroom. I added disc magnets to the back of each piece so students can play on the dry erase board. So, all I needed to do was type up a set of instructions, and this game was good to go!
I also created a small, letter sized version in case you want to have students play Wild Tic Tac Toe in pairs at their desks.
