3T: Text based Tic Tac Toe

I don’t know why, but the idea of programming a text based version of Tic Tac Toe was bothering me for days and after coding hours in PHP for another project, I needed some “refreshment” and started to code this game.
Because it’s a game with a simple structure, the first implementation was not so much work to do, but lacks of a computer opponent, so you only can play it on one PC with two human players, but implementing an “AI” will be the next step for me.

Why text based?
Well, because it’s easy to code and it runs on various machines without the need of special libraries or graphics features.


  • Some computer with a C++ compiler (the oldest I machine I tested was a 233MHz PPC and the program ran well)
  • At least 640KB of RAM
  • A keyboard 😉

For now, I only uploaded a precompiled package for Windows. This one should run on Windows 98 or later. More packages will come soon…
