Ric-Pac-Soe 3p game demo | Ric-Pac-Soe AI game demo


  • 2 or 3 players
  • 1 # shape 3x3 board
  • 2 or 3 decks of rock paper scissors cards with different colors. Each deck has 2 rocks, 2 papers, 2 scissors cards


Place an empty board. Shuffle each deck. Place a deck of cards facing up in front of each player.


Like tic-tac-toe, take turns playing by putting the top card of the deck on the board.
The first player to get three of his/her cards in a row (up, down, across, or diagonally) wins the game.

  1. Unlike tic-tac-toe, a player can replace another player's card on the board if his/her card beats the shape of the card in rock paper scissors.
  2. In that case, the card that is replaced returns to the top of its owner's deck of cards.
  3. If the game is played by three people, and the same card is returned twice, that card goes to the bottom instead of the top.
