Tapatan is a strategy game, similar to Tic Tac Toe. The object is to get three markers in a row, horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
Each player has three playing pieces.
Two players begin with an empty board. They take turns placing one marker per turn on any empty space. If there is not a winner after players have positioned their three pieces, they take turns moving along a line, one space at a time.
