    If you have mastered this game, you’ll know that tilted squares are a good way to win. Have a look at this link to further investigate them. http://nrich.maths.org/2667

    I think a good tac tick is to be thinking about other person moves.

    I Try to trick my opponent by trying to make 2 squares at the same time, so they block one off but miss the other one.

    Sam’s best move was to place his counters in each corner of the board.Louis’ greatest tactic was placing his counter in easy places I didn’t realise they were their because I was concentrating on making my own square.
