90,000+ Hits Blog Candy!

I can't believe this blog has 90,000+ hits. I'm not far from 100,000 hits. What a celebration that one will be. I'll have to find some REALLY special Blog Candy for that.

The puzzle this time is a "Tic Tac Toe Challenge." I'm telling you, this is the most difficult one yet!!! The challenge reads:

"You are battling for the tic tac toe championship of the world. (Of the world, mind you! NO stress there!!! lol) You have the last move and one open square is left. Can you win the championship with only one move? You are x. Good luck!"



SO, the question here is obvious, "can you win the championship with only one move?" I know it's tough but give it a try! Sorry to say that this is the last of those puzzles. I do not know where on the internet I found them and no one has contacted me to tell me they belong to them. We will probably have to play some "real" games for Blog Candy in the future. LOL



Have fun!




The Blog Candy posted here is some fun stuff! Yet useful!



There's a package of square double-sided foam "dots" a package of round double-sided foam dots, double-sided tape, a package of purple fibers, 3 rolls of ribbons, a package of baby charms and two packages of the small clear rubber stamps.



I will draw a name/number sometime on Saturday afternoon July 21, 2007.



Good luck!

The answer is yes. I miss you Wanda and hope to see you in August. Hope your summer is going well. Don't know how mine is half gone!

Charlene H. said...

Ok - I don't get it. You put the X in the middle square but there must be a catch - it can't be that simple (or can it?)

Tracy said...

congrats on the hits! I am going to go with X marks the spot!

Kristina Lewis said...

Way to go with the hits!! X in the middle, baby!! You are so funny, where do you find these???

Jennifer said...

I'm gonna say no...yeah i know I am probably wrong but I will answer no. Congrats on 90,000 hits I hope to win!

Yes! X in the middle! Woo hoo! :) lol

Unknown said...

This seems like a move only a Russian chess master could figure out! Grins!

Yes, I think I can do this but this one has to be the hardest one yet and I don't know if I can get it right...is it an "x" in the center square? LOL!

Great Halloween scrapbook page too!

Congrats on 90,000 - that's incredible!

Debbi (no 'e' on the end) said...

I will have to just guess here. Let me think now. So much pressure I can't stand it..... I think I can win with just my x if I place it in the middle square. OH I HOPE I WIN, I HOPE I WIN!! Hey Wanda.....congrats on the 90,000+ HITS....here's to many, many more my friend.

Jessica said...

It's too tough it's confusing! I would an X in the middle. If I still didn't win, that means that O cheated! :-) Thanks for the chance to win and congrats on your hits!

Unknown said...

mmm. this is the hardest one yet, I give up!

Cathy M said...

Sweet candy to celebrating with your readers. Congrats on your hits. I put the X in the middle and WHOOO HOOO I won 2 ways. That's to cool. Thanks for a chance.

Jan Scholl said...

SInce I done learnt only the impornant stuff like dottin' my eyes and crossin' my tees, I learnt to make an x when I wanted to leave someone a kiss-so I be kissing the middle of the puzzle with a big fat x.

Stacey's Stamping Studio said...

I believe it to be no. Here is my answer with a couple different takes: "X" takes 2 movements to write, in order for the winner to "win" tic tac toe the winner must move at least 3 X's to make a straight line...but there were also at least 2 moves by the other player as well,...but once you place your "X" you can't "move" it, jeapers....I could keep going with the deeper thought but I will stop there...HEE, hee, hee.

NormaJ said...

For no other reason, than I am going to do this, my answer is NO.
Simple as that, with no explanation. Congrats on the blog hits. Wow!

Pat said...

An X in the middle square seems to be the obvious move, but then again can it be that easy???

Pat

Karen Lindsay said...

You have the best challenges and the nicest candy! I would put my X right in the middle and win!

Wow I think it is X!!! Congrats on the hits!!

Denise said...

I'm going to go with the crowd and make a wild guess that it goes in the center. I'm not sure though...could be a trick hidden here somewhere!
Congrats on the hits...yours is the first blog I subscribed to and now I get about a half dozen. And my hubby wonders how there could be so much stamping stuff to look at...lol. It all started with you, Wanda!

StampOwl said...

Yes! If I put the x in the middle I get a diagonal line both ways - sooooooooo easy!!!!!!! Oh wait a minute your puzzles are supposed to be hard right ;) - ohhhhh this one was sooooo hard really it was!!!!! ;)

Unknown said...

Congrats on the hits Wanada. Wow!! I am moving up also with my Blog views. It's great huh? I did find where the X went. lol. Sad that this will be one of the last puzzles we have. It's great waking up early and trying to figure these hard puzzles out. It gets the brain workin. :) hehe..

Lorri said...

It seems too obvious, but x in the middle.

Nikki Bond said...

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm? I think X in the middle? Thanks for the laugh this morning!!!

Michele Kovack said...

Vicky said...

Congrats on the posts!!! How about an X in the middle!

Angel said...

I know it's a s-t-r-e-t-c-h, but I am going to have to say I would need to place my one and only, solitary "x" in the very center, middle square of the game board and that would mean that I would win the game of Tic-Tac-Toe and be crowned champion. Yes?
Love your puzzles, Wanda!

Jeannie said...

Just love your card samples! Do you know that I always thought the puzzles were harder than they really were?! Scary isn't it!

Cheryl KVD said...

Once again you are challenging my "mommy brain" so early in the morning. I am going to bet it all and say yes! I can win the championship by putting the x in the middle!

Hey...congratulations on 90,000+++!!!!

And the answer to the question you asked is YES.

Anonymous said...

I'm going with X in the middle to win!! Yeah! Thanks so much for the chance to win blog candy. Love the blog! Keep up the great work!

ThreadCatcher said...

As with all your puzzles I struggled mightily to come up with the right answer...I'm going with yes, X in the middle box will win and be the Tic Tac Toe CHAMPION OF THE WORLD (insert boxing announcer voice)! Jenny

Anonymous said...

Congrats on the 90,000 hits. Way to go. Love your blog and that is great candy you are sharing. My answer would be yes I can win with one move. I would place my x in the middle. Great game!

Mental Pausing Crafter said...

OH WOW! X in the middle would make me the WORLD CHAMP! WOW, I've never been a WORLD CHAMP!!! But wait am I really ready for the fame, the loss of my privacy as all the photographers scramble day after day for my photo. Constant interviews, being chased down the road for just a quick photo and possible comment. Is my DOG ready to have his life completely disrupted - I don't know - should I make the X or not? SO MUCH PRESSURE!!!! :) Thanks, Tami

Tami Grandi said...

oooh- this is a tough one! But I think yes, x will mark the spot in the middle and then I win (two ways!) Thanks for the fun times!

Anonymous said...

Congrats to your hits. I think if you put the x in the middle you just might win. So sad no more challenging puzzles!

Anonymous said...

I truly believe it can be done. I would need to "ponder" it a bit, but I think it's possible.

Thanks for being such a great inspiration, and for the cute puzzles! I hope you find more cute ones to post in the future. Congrats on your 90,000 hits!

Anonymous said...

Let me see...after much thought and a few coffee breaks, I am going to say yes! I am the new world champ!!! :)

Alex said...

Congratulations on your milestone - how cool is that? Hmmm...I am going to take a stab at it and say "X marks the spot in the middle for the win!!!" So yes you can win with one move as long as it's the right one - LOL!

bethtrue said...

Wanda - i think this can be done in one move; right in the middle. but then again, i'm no expert so maybe that's simplifying things too much. LOL. anyway thanks again for another great laugh this morning. have a great day!

Beth B. (mommy to an almost 4-yr old)

Linda SS said...

Please put the X in the middle! Maybe this time I can win Tic Tac Toe...my 5 yr. old granddaughter wins me all the time.

Anonymous said...

Congratulations on your hits! Now the game, I'll take the center square for the win!

Kim Brancato said...

Congrats on the 90,000 I am going to say yes to the X in the middle. I figure it's probably to easy to be right but it looks good on paper. Pick me!! lol

Carolyn Sharkas said...

Stampin_Melissa said...

*wipes sweat from brow*

*cautiously move hand near center spot*

*takes a deep breath*

*decisively places 'X' in center spot*

I am sooooo going to miss these challenges! ;D

Melissia said...

Oh my. Are you serious? The PRESSURE! I will have to come back to it. It's just too much right now.

:o)

Yes, you can! I'm just gonna leave it at that, 'cause it is just too hard to explain.

ikkinlala said...

I believe the answer is yes.

Congrats on all the hits!

Sheri said...

If only all games were this easy! Putting an 'X' in the middle spot means you make 2 lines... does that mean I win twice?? "I am the double tic tac toe champion of the world!" Heehee! Love these games! Congrats on 90K!!!

Heather Leech said...

X in the middle for sure! I had to think long and hard on this one, though! Thanks for a chance at some great candy!

The X goes in the middle, right?

Great blog, Wanda. It's one I never miss. Congrats to you!

Rosella said...

Love your games. Sorry to hear this is the last of them. I would have to say, after a lot of thought, that I would put the X in the middle.
Congratulations on your hits!!!

L8ybug2 said...

This took me a very loooong time to figure out, but I finally got it. YES! I can win....thanks for the fun challenge.

Here's what I think: the puzzle in quotations does not refer to your picture (nor do you refer to the picture offering the challenge). So, if one is answering the puzzle on text alone in quotation marks AND especially if you are just answering the question: "Can you win the championship with only one move?" the answer is:
No
because you need a minimum of three moves to win at tic tac toe.
If you take into account that you are talking about the last move, the answer could still be:
No
because it is possible to be X and have the last move and not get three in a row.

Anonymous said...

Yes if you are referring to the picture and no if you are referring to the puzzle itself.

Shaz said...

Yes X marks the spot in the centre of the puzzle. Congrats on having so many hits. Awesome prize you have up on offer.

Anonymous said...

Because 'stampers' like to Win Win and be in the middle of all the excite - I'm going to go for the Middle block - I not only Win 2 ways but I'm in the Center of it ALL!! Love your cards - great inspiration - Hey - the Tic Tac Toe could be a 'sketch' as well... OK - I'm new and it's probably already been done. :)

Anonymous said...

I just graduated from High School so I will prove that I deserve the diploma by putting my X in the center. LOL

Michelle said...

Congratulations on all your hits!!! It looks like "X" marks the spot:) You are too generous!
