Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

If you're someone that likes to try new things and be one of the first to discover new games, you have to try Tic Tactics for your Android smartphone or Apple iPhone. Tic Tactics is the newest turn-by-turn strategy game that will keep you thinking about your next moves.

Tic Tactics is a new spin on the classic game of Tic-tac-toe. While the basic premise of Tic-tac-toe is the same in Tic Tactics, you play on nine small boards all at once within one large board. While you take turns making moves, one of the strategic twists is that you get to decide which board your opponent gets to play on. This one brilliant detail keeps you from a sea of "cat's" games and makes it more interesting for the average to advanced player.

Like most of the popular games right now, Tic Tactics can integrate directly with your Facebook account so you can invite your friends to play with you. I find that turn-by-turn games are always better when you are playing someone you know. That way when they have not moved in a few days, you can send them a text message requesting a move.
