If you go to this site you will see a document about the origin of the game of chess:
http://silkroadfoundation.org/newsletter/volumeonenumberone/origin.html
Inside the article there are two paragraphs that explain tic-tac-toe.
Here is a quote in which tic-tac-toe is shown to be an early kind of chess:
As an alternative possibility to the divinification I offer, the game of Tic-Tac-Toe could be viewed as providing the roots for the moves of the counters. Tic-Tac-Toe is played by 2 players, e. g. Black and White, with a set of pieces of equal value each, on a 3x3 board. The players move alternatively with the goal to get three of the own pieces in one horizontal, vertical or diagonal row. In the following diagram, that goal is achieved by occupying the points 1, 2, 3, or the parallels; the points 1, 4, 7, or the parallels; or the diagonals 1, 5, 9, or 3, 5, 7: 1 2 3
Tic-Tac-Toe was played at least 3000 years ago. It is also called "Three Men's Morris", where "morris" is a corruption of merels, the Latin word for counters [Pritchard 1994]. From a game-theoretic point of view, it is always a draw and is trivial. A more challenging extension was played extensively 6. The placing of the following piece of the same color (2 moves ahead) is either vertical, horizontal, diagonal or in diagram (1) the point 8 following the point 1, or equivalent sequences this is similar to a knight's move in Chess. Thus all move sequences of the pieces in Chess are represented. |
