Euros are better with dice!

E-Tac-Toe
Players: 2
Time: 5 minutes
Type: abstract
Materials needed: Paper, pens, rules (PDF)

What if you had a game that everyone would know before ever seeing it, which had limited scope, fast gameplay and yet near infinite possibilities.

Enter E-Tac-Toe. ETT is Tic-Tac-Toe all grown up. It still has the easy-to-grasp rules and gameplay of the original but coupled with a eurogame scoring mechanism. No longer are you out to get a string of marks of a certain length. Instead you want to have the longest string - but you can add two shorter strings together to make a longer one!

Standard Tic-Tac-Toe has 255 168 possible games (not adjusting for rotated, mirrored or symmetrical games) and 138 terminal board positions.
ETT has 371 993 326 789 901 200 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 (3.7*10^41) possible games and 9 075 135 300 terminal board positions.
