April 25, 2012 at 3:45 pm (Uncategorized)

Notakto is an iPad application for impartial misere Tic-Tac-Toe.

Bob Koca suggested this game, and there is some discussion of it on MathOverflow.net (search for “Neutral Tic Tac Toe”) in a thread created by Timothy Chow.

The misere quotient of X-only Tic Tac Toe has eighteen elements and four P-position types.   Here is a paper draft with title “The Secrets of Notakto: How to Win at X-Only Tic-Tac-Toe.”
