TIC-TAC-TOE CRUSADER GAME SETNobleWares Image of Tic-Tac-Toe Crusader Game Set 5925 by YTC Summit Collection BK YT5925 YTC SUMMIT
Add a medieval twist to an age old past time favorite. Each hand painted poly resin game piece is 2 1/2" tall and is highly detailed giving a fine quality appearance. Includes 6" x 6" elegant tic tac toe board that is wonderfully decorated in fleur-de-lis and celtic knotwork patterns which surround a carved antique green agate and pointalized orangesque squared playing field. Made of cold cast Stone Resin, the beautiful playing surface looks, feels and even sounds like like real carved porous stone. The base of each player and the board base is lined with a plush black velveteen to protect any display surface while keeping the board snug in place when all the ticking, tacking, and toeing begins. And because the pieces and board are lightly magnetized, board-quake player piece tumbles are a thing of the past!

THE ORIGINS OF NOUGHTS & CROSSES (TIC-TAC-TOE) Noughts and Crosses is a game that has been played in the United Kingdom for several centuries - even if it’s precise history seems unknown. Tic-Tac-Toe is an ancient game that some people have said has been played in Egypt as early as 1300 B.C. It is also known as "Noughts and Crosses" or in slightly different form as "Nine Men's Morris". It may be that the ancient Roman game of Terni Lapilli was an identical game although the evidence is somewhat mixed. It is certainly true that identical grids to the noughts and crosses grid have been found scratched and etched into surfaces all over the ancient Roman empire. However not a single Nought or Cross has been found to confirm the link. It seems probable that Terni Lapilli was played with simple pieces and may have been played with the same rules.
