Beat Google At Tic Tac Toe, Feel Good For Once

    February 10, 2006

Google’s latest Sidebar comes with a little game, just like every good operating system, in this case Tic Tac Toe.

Erik Thauvin says that you can easily defeat Google’s AI, every damn time. He has screen shots, but its pretty simple:

  • Top right
  • Bottom left
  • Bottom right
  • Bottom center
  • You won!
  • Loser
  • Have you really won? Just because the AI is predictable, doesn’t make your miserable life any better.

    Hmm You’d think Google could design an unbeatable TTT AI. I’m guessing that the limited probabilities of the game make “solving” it impossible. Perhaps a more complex game would have been better, like SuDoKu, or Hi-Q.
