Proposal: Locked In

Withdrawn. - Jumble

Re-write the first 7 paragraphs of The Grid to the following:

The Grid is a publicly tracked 7x7 grid, where each cell defaults to the blank string.  Blank cells may be represented by the symbol U+005F (“_”).  Each individual cell on The Grid may be referred to as “Cell XY”, where Y is the number of the row it sits on (ordered from top to bottom) and X is the letter of the English alphabet with the index of the column the cell sits on (ordered from left to right).

Tic-Tac-Toe is a game that is played on The Grid.  As a daily action, a Player can make one move. A valid move consists of adding your symbol to exactly one cell that contains no other symbols (removing ‘_’ if it is in that cell).

When a Player forms an unbroken vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row of three or more of their symbol anywhere on the board, the round ends, and the player that formed a complete row gains 1 Deed. If it is impossible for any player to make a valid move, the round ends and nobody gains a deed.

Once a round ends, any player may Reset the board by performing the following atomic action:
- Remove all Symbols from all Cells
- Start a new round


Giving this a bit more direction: There is *one* board, with *one* fixed size.  Hopefully we won’t have to bodge around variable everything anymore.

I’m not sure that I recognise that the variable is causing loads of trouble at the moment?

It’s not *really* as of now, but I just wanted to get rid of some stuff that I thought were unnecessary.  If we need them back we can just repropose it.

In particular I think the variable grid size was becoming an issue for things like Tic Tac Town.

I thought I took out too much.
