We will have a jolly time playing (Er, I will be talking about) games in the style of tic tac toe. For example, on an m x n board you try to be the first to get k in a row, where k <= 5. Also, I will briefly mention higher dimensional tic tac toe and other variants. Finally, I will present a game I invented, which is played on a hexagonal grid, and some of its variants.
