About Swords&Shields

Swords&Shields also known as Tic-tac-toe or Noughts and crosses or Xs and Os. Is a paper-and-pencil game for two players, X and O, who take turns marking the spaces in a 3×3 grid. The player who succeeds in placing three of their marks in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row wins the game.


An early variant of Tic-tac-toe was played in the Roman Empire, around the first century BC. It was called Terni Lapilli and instead of having any number of pieces, each player only had three, thus they had to move them around to empty spaces to keep playing. The game's grid markings have been found chalked all over Rome. However, according to Claudia Zaslavsky's book Tic Tac Toe: And Other Three-In-A Row Games from Ancient Egypt to the Modern Computer, Tic-tac-toe could originate back to ancient Egypt. Another closely related ancient game is Three Men's Morris which is also played on a simple grid and requires three pieces in a row to finish.

Thoroughly did like this version of a classic game! The computer ai is intelligent enough, and I love that there is no advertising or prompts for paid add ons, or even any unnecessary permissions. The only thing I would suggest would be making an options menu, with audio control, since the sound effects can be annoying after a while..
