Tic Tac Toe is a game known to millions, played in great tournaments by men and women with incalculable skill and mental agility. Volumes have been written about the game and its personalities, but Mudjohn Portland brings us astonishing news: behind the epic Tic Tac Toe contests are deeply held secrets, known only to obscure monks at an otherwise famous monastery. Portland claims to have infiltrated The Grandmaster Guild itself and has revealed that the Guild is not the merely custodian of the Forbidden Monastery, as all have been led to believe, but custodian to its secrets, as well.
The most shocking revelation is the secret knowledge residing in the well known Tic Tac Toe opening, "The Devil's Gambit." Puzzles and puzzling anecdotes abound in this cryptic tale by a cryptic author who insists that he escaped the Guild clutching the secrets of the Forbidden Monastery "at great personal risk of bodily harm." Most astonishing of all: to those who crack the Tic Tac Toe Code, Portland promises a reward... not just in improved game play or the enjoyment of unraveling puzzles... but in cold, hard, cash.
