Tic Tac Toe Prototype Following is a prototype of a Tic Tac Toe program. The main goal of the program is to provide quick and simple entertainment. It should also be usable by young children who are still learning the game, so it will give constructive feedback when the player is making an obvious mistake.

Tic Tac Toe Prototype It is not necessary to show every possible user story. After you have shown a few, you can write the rest in text. For example: Sample Games Beginners want to see some sample games so they can learn more quickly. The program could have a database of sample games, and run in “Demo” mode to display them.
Tic Tac Toe Prototype 1.Human Player Wins 2.Computer Wins 3.Computer Warns About Stupid Move 4.Computer Rejects Cheater Moves 5.Human Chooses Playing X or O 6.Computer Stores and Displays Demo Games 7.Computer Recognizes a Drawn Game It is helpful to name the stories (scenarios). This prototype showed the following:
PowerPoint for Prototypes It is not a requirement to use PowerPoint for your prototype(s), but it has several advantages: 1.Puts the programmer in the right “mood” 2.Screen design is quick and easy 3.It keeps sample screens organized 4.Can easily copy and paste new screens 5.Gives the user a “feeling” for the features 6.You can easily save, modify, and print screens
Prototypes and Automation Don’t waste time trying to automate your prototype – the stories can be linear Keep notes about automation that will be required in your solution – for example: - Computer “knows” the rules - Computer can recognize a winning move - Computer recognizes game over, including a tie
