It's fantastic to see people engaged already but I think it best we  
keep hold of our thoughts until Dojo - that way all participants start  
the Dojo without having to read email exchanges here and elsewhere.

As the comments in the code suggest, everything is open to change and  
we've only provided a minimal starting point (rather than a scary  
"blank sheet"). Of course there are *lots* of ways to represent a tic- 
tac-toe board. We just plumped for one but *you* could change it if  
you wanted to... of course that means you'll have to be first into the  
hot seat... ;-)

We discussed different playing capabilities at some length at the last  
planning meetup... in the end we thought it better to let the code  
grow in the Dojo rather than provide another scaffold. Less is more  
and all that...

If there is time there's no reason why we can't attempt your different  
player combination suggestions.

Best wishes,
