It took my 3 year old less than five seconds to discover the problem with this game. In spite of not really understanding the point of tic-tac-toe.
So much for buying stocking stuffers in the dollar bin at Target. (Or perhaps I should blame it on the speed at which I was shopping. Not being a big fan of shopping, I was in and out very quickly. Perhaps a bit too quickly.)

too much yellow 🙂
Fairly obvious: you need 5 of each kind of piece to play Tic-Tac-Toe, not six of one and three of the other.
@Lefty I thought you need 5 X & 4 0…. X is always first turn and there are only 9 places……
there’s only two outcome of the game (assuming both player play till the end):
a) 5 “X” and 4 “O”
b) 4 “X” and 4 “O”
hence to cover both possible outcome, the game need to be supplied with 5 “X” and 5 “O”.
