Abstract-Tac-Toe

I heard a game described, a variant on tic-tac-toe, that I couldn't figure out how to completely dominate, so I figured I'd make it so I could see if it's as fun as described, and not trivially simple.

A couple of days ago, on Imgur, someone described a game as Ultimate Tic-Tac-Toe, with a rule set I’ve not been able to explain without visual aids. But the rules are very simple (see the Imgur link), and I figured I’d make it.

It’s a surprisingly challenging game to think about. I’ll be playing it until I feel I’ve got a good sense, and I hope to see you guys in the lobby.

[Update] After having played this a lot, I can confirm the computer is pretty crafty. If you can beat it consistently, send me a message. It’s a deep game, and the computer never looks more than two moves ahead, but it can still be hard to beat.
