Samsara: While I'm not normally a fan of the notability clause in our rules, the nature of Tic-Tac-Toe as a game means that there really isn't any possible way to make either a quality or notable version of it. It's a basic game, essentially a beginner's programming project, and without spicing it up in some significant ways, there's really no way I can see it being published. Like denying beer that someone made in their bathtub, rejecting for bad homebrew.
