It is always a draw because tic tac toe, if both players play the perfect move, always ends in a draw. It is proved that there exist for both player 1 and 2 an algorithm to force a draw en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tic-tac-toe –  user58002 Oct 24 '13 at 14:58

I believe this shouldn't be closed as a duplicate of gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/137242/… as per community consensus in the Arqade Meta post, What do you do when a question is asked which is a collection of other asked questions? –  galacticninja Nov 2 '13 at 6:08

for those who don't play, I guess it means putting an X outside the "official" playing area –  ratchet freak Oct 24 '13 at 12:48

The Only way to win is by putting all of you X's in a row outside the box.
