What can I tell you about Tic-Tac-Toe that you haven't heard before? I used to play Noughts and Crosses on the school bus when the windows were fogged-up with condensation from child-breath. Every day. By myself. I admit it got a little repetitive. I tried it blindfold once, but that only made me realise I needed to kick the habit.
Thankfully this version allows you to play with someone else, if you know such a person. If you're lacking an opponent, the computer will gladly play you instead, just like in that '80s movie WarGames, but without the looming threat of a global thermo-nuclear war. Which I suppose is only a good thing.

The seasonally-adjusted CIPS/Markit Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose to 42.9 in April from 39.1 the previous month, but was lower than last year’s figure of 49.7. Despite remaining below the neutral 50.0 mark (a figure less than 50 indicates a contraction) for the 13th month running, the PMI moved further from February’s joint survey record low.
