Pin Tac Toe
Players are organized in 3-player teams. Play is between teams in a head-to-head, single-elimination format. Either bring your friends or we can match you up with others to make a team. The teams select games on the main show floor and challenge the opposing team. The winner of each game gets to place an X or O on the Pin Tac Toe sheet. The winner of the match is the team which gets three in a row. The winning team will advance to challenge other teams.
