Proposal: Triple Threat

Times out 5-3.  Enacted by Jumble.

Adminned at 17 Feb 2022 01:37:19 UTC

In “The Grid”, replace “The Grid Size is a publicly tracked positive integer which defaults to 3.” with

The Grid Size is a publicly tracked positive integer that defaults to half the number of Active Players rounded up.

Replace the third paragraph of “Tic-Tac-Toe Rules” with the following:

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 point. If it is impossible for any player to make a valid move, the round ends and nobody gains a point.

A 3x3 board is far too small for everyone to play on, and even with a larger board it’s going to be incredibly difficult for anyone to get an unbroken row that spans the entire thing.

Getting three in a row on a board of size 4+ is trivially easy for the first player to achieve.

tempted to green tick for the lols but figure its fairer to point that out and give you time to fix

I don’t think it’s trivially easy when you can only make one move per day and there’s 13 other people working against you.

Do you have any other ideas?

aren’t games between two players? so you have one person working against you?

Oh right, well if tic tac go doesn’t pass I’ll just withdraw this. I really should I have put it all in one proposal but I didn’t want to overload it.

But also as it stands now there isn’t technically any way to play the game, so your point is kind of moot.

This get’s messy if we start losing players.

Additionally, a person could convince 2 people to go idle and then make it easier for them to get a “tic-tac-toe”
