請問一下為什麼井字棋又稱為Tic Tac Toe呢?

那請問一下他的縮寫是什麼?

Toe很明顯是腳趾的意思

可是跟Tic Tac又有什麼關聯?

    Tic-tac-toe 的來源太久遠,近乎不可考。一說來自羅馬,另一說來自埃及。但是和現在的圈叉遊戲並不同。

    井字圈叉遊戲名稱叫 Naughts and Crosses (圈和叉). 在二十世紀和 Tic-tac-toe 名稱互相通用。

    Tic-tac-toe 可能是取音,而不是用字義。因為同一個遊戲在美國有底下的通用名稱:Tick-tack-toe, tic-tac-toe, tick-tat-toe, or tit-tat-toe (USA, Canada)

    可能Tic-tac-toe最早的遊戲(backgammon)是棋子,由上往下擲,會發出類似 tic, tac, toe的聲音吧。(這部份是我猜的。因為我玩過現代版的 tic-tac-toe 是如此由下往上堆積色球比賽連線的.)

    詳細名稱和遊戲細節可以參考這裡:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tic-tac-toe

    tic-tac-toe 名稱來源和混用的部份原文如下,蠻囉唆的:

    The different names of the game are more recent. The first print reference to "noughts and crosses", the British name, appeared in 1864. The first print reference to a game called "tick-tack-toe" occurred in 1884, but referred to "a children's game played on a slate, consisting in trying with the eyes shut to bring the pencil down on one of the numbers of a set, the number hit being scored". "Tic-tac-toe" may also derive from "tick-tack", the name of an old version of backgammon first described in 1558. The U.S. renaming of noughts and crosses as tic-tac-toe occurred in the 20th century.

    更正:圈叉遊戲(毫無疑問的名稱) - Noughts and Crosses (先前寫成Naughts)
