Do you love playing Tic Tac Toe? If you do, and are looking for a tough opponent to beat, Tic Tac Tome is the perfect book for you. You can go first, or you can turn the book over and let the book move first. You choose where to place the X, and go to the page number in that space to see where the book will go. You continue on this way until either you or the book wins, or the game ends in a draw. It is a fun choose your own adventure game, and more addictive than you would guess.
I received a copy of this book from Quirk Books in exchange for an honest review*. Tic Tac Toe seems like such an easy game to win. It turns out, the book is a great player. I have yet to win a round. I was determined to win. Having no luck with my quest, I decided to bring this book with me on my family vacation. I knew my family would have fun with it, and I wanted to discover how long it would take someone to win. Family members of all ages tried it. For some of the kids it was their first choose your own adventure type book, and they loved it! Any time we had down time someone had the book in their hands searching for the way to win(I also offered the book as a prize to the first person to beat it, which may also have fueled people's determination). My brother finally discovered the way to win. Yes, it is possible to beat the book.
Tic Tac Tome is a fun activity for any age. All you need to play is: the rules to Tic Tac Toe, and to know how choose your own adventure books work. All of this is explained at the beginning of the book. It was an entertaining challenge that everyone had a good time with. The small size of the book makes it easily transportable, so you can fit in time to challenge the book to a game whenever you have a spare moment.
If you like a challenging puzzle I suggest playing Tic Tac Tome.
*Quirk Books does not require a review or stipulate what kind of review should be given if you are inclined to review the book. It was simply part of a promotional event for their book. Receiving a free copy of this book does not change my review. It merely provides me with a book I would not have read as soon, or found out about otherwise.
