Apple Eye Games come with a set of directions and visual diagrams. Here we offer the same rules and diagrams with some fun alternate rules added down, below.

3-Dimensional Tic Tac Toe

This game is like the tic tac toe you learned when you were younger.  But now there are four levels and sixteen squares per level.  We think you’ll prefer this spiced-up version: it’s easy to learn but be aware: there are endless ways to win!

Game Directions:

Decide who goes first, pick a color, and takes turns placing one piece on any open square of the four levels.  The first player to get four in a row is the Winner. 

Examples of Four in a Row:

Three diagrams that demonstrate how to win 3-Dimensional Tic Tac Toe.

Alternate Game Play:

  • Team Play!  Two Teams with two players on each team.
  • For an added challenge, require the winner to win in two places at once.
  • Limit the amount of time for each turn and set a timer. If the timer goes off before the next piece is placed, the player forfeits his turn.
  • Limit the number of usable playing pieces. If all pieces are used without a
    winner, “the cat gets that game.”
