This game needs a "play again" option without having to refresh the widget.

This is an awesome widget, and definitely a necessary one. But, there is a glitch in the game where either the computer or I will get three in a row, but it ignores it and the other, unrightful person, wins. Also, it would be nice to have a two player mode.

To be more specific about what I said about the glitch:
When you (or the computer) fill the top row, it does not register as a win.

modcaveman, good catch! I'll try to fix this in a 1.2 release. Also, if more people are interested in 2-player mode, I can try to work that in for 2.0. Thanks for the feedback, everyone!

Now it's a lot harder, but there's one other catch: there's a fail-proof way to win every time!!! put an x in the middle bottom square, and the circle will be put in the middle right square. then put an x in the left middle square, and the circle will be put in the middle square. then put an x in the bottom left hand corner, and you HAVE to win!!! maybe you should fix that.

oh yeah, one more thing. i think it would be nice if you put an option for who starts first; you or the computer

um... there's still that error for the top row. when i fill the left two, the circle usually has two circles, one in the bottom left hand corner and one in the middle, so both it and i have to get the top right hand corner. so when i put an x in the square, the computer just puts a circle over it and it wins! sorry if this is hard to visualize, but i can't explain it any other way.

Segdeha, I would personally appreciate a 2 x 2 version option packaged with the 3 x 3. The 2 x 2 poses some interesting philosophical questions. A 4x4 is not worth the work. A 1x2 would also be nice.
