This Book Can Beat You At Tic-Tac-Toe

There's no electronics, no electronic paper, no artificial intelligence, not even magic or the occult involved, but this thick Tic Tac Tome book can still play a mean game of noughts and crosses.

While you're only ever allowed to play as the X, you still have the choice of going first, or letting the $US20 book make the opening salvo. And instead of drawing your mark on the game board, you simply flip to the page number indicated in the space you want to play, and the game progresses from there.

There's no memory for keeping track of the high score, and no achievements for when you go on a winning streak, but you can pause the game at any time with a bookmark and its state-of-the-art display technology is perfectly visible in bright sunlight. Just be ready to upgrade it in a couple of years when they release a new edition with a fancy new font. [ThinkGeek]
