About Giant tic tac toe

Giant tic tac toe is a fun spin on a classic game! The first team to get three in a row wins, but you can mix it up with a tossing challenge and relay ideas to add even more excitement. All pieces are durable yet flexible, making it easy for all ages to play.

Seasonal Activity Kits are offered in partnership with Brampton Recreation and with generous support from the JumpStart Community Development Grant.

Game Setup

Giant tic tac toe can be played on a flat surface such as concrete, bare ground or grass. Place the 4 polyvinyl pieces on the ground to create the tic tac toe board. 

For a relay setup, mark a starting line about 20 feet away from the board. Increase the distance from the starting line to the board for older players, decrease the distance for younger players.

If you have enough players for 2 equal teams. One team gets X’s, the other gets O’s. 

Both teams line up behind the starting line.

How to Play

We start the game with a signal - on your mark, get set, go! 

At the signal, 1 player from each team races to the play area with an X or O in hand. 

The player that gets to the board first places their letter down first. The other player gets to place their letter after the first player. Both return to the line. 

Another signal gets called out, and the next two players race to the board with an X or O in hand. Play continues until a team wins (see below) or the game is considered a draw.


The first team to place 3 markers in a row (either vertically, horizontally, or diagonally) wins!
