  • How to Create Hot Educational Software Even If You’ve Never Touched a Line of Code. If you’ve ever thought about creating educational software or wondered what it would be like to run your own software company, you’ll be interested in this.

    Last year Ben Prater told me he had just put the finishing touches on a guide that could teach anyone how to create software — even if they’ve never touched a line of code. I was pretty skeptical. I thought software was the domain of experienced programmers. But Ben persisted and sent me a review copy … Click here for details:

See ya on the Net,

Tic-tac-toe is a simple game (usually played with pencil and paper) that can be enjoyed by kids as young as three. What I find most fascinating about these online tic-tac-toe games, is their variety. The many creative twists that can be put on such a simple game are amazing.

All Mixed Up Tic-Tac-Toe



This straight forward tic-tac-toe offers no elaborate choices, and can be enjoyed by all ages. Other games, such as hangman, sliding tile puzzles, Connect 4 (a favorite at our house), Othello and Ataxx, are only a free registration away. Free subscriptions are limited to twenty games a day, however. If your gaming needs exceed that, you’ll need to purchase a monthly or quarterly subscription.

ArcadeTown: 3D Tic-Tac-Toe



When you add another dimension to the usual three-by-three two-dimensional board, tic-tac-toe is no longer trivial, and it may take a few games until you can easily visualize the three boards stacked on top of each other. One interesting twist to the game play is that although each “three in a row” earns you a point, the game is not over until all the cells are filled. At Arcade Town, the human player (that’s you) always starts, and always plays as X.

Boulter’s Tic-Tac-Toe



This game is unique because it lets you customize the dimensions of your board. You can choose from the traditional three-by-three, or any size up to seven-by-seven. Of course, increasing the size of the board, increases the difficulty of the game. Other choices include who goes first, and whether you want to be X or O. And for those interested in programming, the author provides a behind-the-scenes look at the game’s decision-making logic.
