Connect Four is a popular game in which two players take turns placing game chips down an upright six-by-seven grid. The goal is to get four chips in a line (vertically, horizontally, or diagonally). Connect Four has been extensively studied and it has been determined that the player who moves first has an advantage. We studied an upright three-by-three grid in which the objective is to get three chips in a line. We also considered other games on three-by-three grids such as Tic-Tac-Toe and Dawson’s Chess.
