Yeah, there's 81 tiles, 81 tiles (plus spacers), up to 162 magnets and
metal chunks and some sort of 1x9 tray for the tiles...
I'm looking at making the board a collection of trays like this XO game as
It makes the play board necessarily two layers but it gets rid of magnets.
Still a little up in the air.. if nothing new comes to mind by say
tomorrow, I may will make a prototype like the tic-tac-toe game and get it
out the door for testing...
