Tic-Tac-Toe, sometimes also known as Xs and Os, is a game for two players (X and O) who take turns marking the spaces in a 3×3 grid. The player who succeeds in placing three respective marks in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal rows (NW-SE and NE-SW) wins the game.
But we will not be playing this game. You will be the referee for this games results. You are given a result of a game and you must determine if the game ends in a win or a draw as well as who will be the winner. Make sure to return "X" if the X-player wins and "O" if the O-player wins. If the game is a draw, return "D".
A game's result is presented as a list of strings, where "X" and "O" are players' marks and "." is the empty cell.
Input: A game result as list of strings (unicode).
Output: "X", "O" or "D" as a string.
assert checkio(["X.O", "XX.", "XOO"]) == "X" assert checkio(["OO.", "XOX", "XOX"]) == "O" assert checkio(["OOX", "XXO", "OXX"]) == "D" assert checkio(["O.X", "XX.", "XOO"]) == "X"
How it is used: The concepts in this task will help you when iterating data types. They can also be used in game algorithms, allowing you to know how to check results.
- there is either one winner or a draw;
- len(game_result) == 3;
- all(len(row) == 3 for row in game_result).
CheckiO Extensions allow you to use local files to solve missions. More info in a blog post.
In order to install CheckiO client you'll need installed Python (version at least 3.8)
Install CheckiO Client first:
pip3 install checkio_client
Configure your tool
checkio --domain=py config --key=
Sync solutions into your local folder
(in beta testing) Launch local server so your browser can use it and sync solution between local file end extension on the fly. (doesn't work for safari)
checkio serv -d
Alternatevly, you can install Chrome extension or FF addon
checkio install-plugin --ff
checkio install-plugin --chromium
