SUMS: Gardiner -- How to win (variants of) Tic-Tac-Toe

This week’s SUMS talk is by Sean Gardiner. 
As always, pizza and drinks are available after the 30-40 minute talk. 
Please note the change of venue from last semester. 

This talk will analyse the game of Tic-Tac-Toe and its many variants, with the aim of 
ascertaining which variations guarantee a win or a draw for the first player (if they’ve 
been solved at all). Games with different board shapes, in higher dimensions, and with 
different win conditions will be considered.
