Tic-Tac-Toe is a very, very, simple game where two players alternate between placing X and O on a 3 by 3 grid, attempting to be the first to get three in a row. Excluding rotations and reflections, there’s less than 800 possible game states. Even the most remotely competent players will result in a tie if they actually give a damn, and it has become the classic example of a “solved” game as a result. The movie War Games would famously use it as a metaphor for the The Cold War's concept of Mutually Assured Destruction, proclaiming "Such a strange game. The only winning move is not to play."
