Originally, the game was from Ancient Rome during the first century. We used to know Roman citizens as barbaric, fearlessly competitive and one of the most popular sports that they have contributed in the history books is gladiatorial combats. However, the Romans were also fond of board games, which combine military strategies and competitive board games like chess, backgammon and also the tic tac toe.
Although the tic tac toe game came from Ancient Rome, it wasn’t popular where it came from. The game really was known during 1884 when the games first printed version came out, and it was called a kids game. However, as the years went on, the game has slowly captured the interest of the general public and ultimately ending up as one of the best paper and pencil game during that era.
