Handy video reveals how to win at noughts and crosses

1.jpg

“I’ll go first."

Words sure to chill any seasoned noughts and crosses player to the bone. Because let's face it: going second benefits nobody.

The other obvious no-no is putting your first marker bang in the centre of the board, no man's land. But all that aside, even if you get the first move and go straight for a corner, how are you best countering an opponent’s reply?

Well the makers of this YouTube video know how, and in it they've put together a relatively straightforward guide to help you on your way to becoming a champ of the Xs and Os.

Though be warned: should they reply to your corner move by going in the centre, you can't win - sorry.  For the other big stats, watch the video below and then test your newfound skills against a bot here.

Does it suck the fun of playing spontaneously against friends? Possibly. 

Should that bother you as you smugly remain undefeated for the entirety of a train journey? Definitely not.
