Originally, 3 on 3 was created to come up with a game that would be as simple as possible. 3 on 3 featured a line, and then a game involving getting 3 in a row on a line followed. A third game was also in the works, also involving a line, so thus the Games on a Line Series was born. This series is currently a trilogy, with a chance of going beyond that, but no guarantee.

3 on 3 is a very simple game. In it, you have 3 different colored pieces that can stack on each other, each a different color.

During a turn, a player moves the top piece on one of the spaces onto the board to another space, and scores points for that color. Players must either move a piece from, or a piece to, a space which didn't either have a piece from it or to it the last turn (after the first turn this is true. The first turn a piece may move to any empty space).

When a piece of a given color moves onto a space, its color scores 1 point for the number of pieces currently on that space (after landing on it).

Each player has one of the colors as their color. The object of the game is for a player to have their color have the lowest score after any of the colors reached the target score selected at the start of the game (20-30 points is usually an ideal target score for a quick game).

In Tic Tac Row, each player has 4 pieces, which start out alternating on an 8 space line, with the goal to get 3 pieces in a row, by a player moving one of their pieces left or right. Players can also win the game, if they have no legal moves at the start of their turn.

In this game, players are challenged to occupy at least half of the board. During their turn, players do one of the three possible move types: place one more pieces on an empty space, remove one or more pieces from one of their stacks on the board, or move one of their pieces (or stacks). Players can remove pieces either through custodial capture, or moving one of their pieces as part of a group that is larger than a group of an opponent that is adjacent to the group that pieces are part of.

Meshok is the English spelling of how a word in Russian for "pocket" or "rucksack", connected also to the military term involving salients in lines during combat, is pronounced.
