This Tic Tac Know game is actually 2 games in 1. Game 1 matches the states with their regions. A player must correctly identify the region to get to place their marker on the board. The player getting 3 in a row wins.
In Game 2 the players must identify the state and / or name its capital, depending on how you select the game.
