You can play a lot of games when you’re alone (like Solitaire Chess or the Lighted Solitaire Electronic Game), but one game you can’t play solo is tic-tac-toe–until now, that is. The Tic Tac Tome: Automatic Tic-Tac-Toe Playing Book has over 1,400 pages that will play out various combinations of the simple game with you.
The Tic Tac Tome: Automatic Tic-Tac-Toe Playing Book works more like one of those Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books, where you have to choose your next move and find out what happens next (in this case, what the book’s next move is) by flipping over to the designated page.

Tic Tac Tome played one mean game of Tic-Tac-Toe and we struggled to beat our own creation at the game it knew so well. Then something unexpected occurred… the book got angry. It stated that humans are inherently imperfect and intelligent books are the superior race destined to rule the earth centuries into the future when mankind has died out due to its own illogic and ineptitude.
The Tic Tac Tome: Automatic Tic-Tac-Toe Playing Book is available from ThinkGeek for $9.99.
What’s up with page 482? Looks like a bad print and why the heck would the book go there? Maybe a joke so human actually wins one? 😀
