Digital Signage Tic-Tac-Toe
This page will show you how to set up our digital signage games.
Currently we have 5 interactive signage games: tic-tac-toe, 4-in-a-row, race, sudoku and say. The race, sudoku and the say work on the Android player application and on the Chrome OS player application, while the 2 other games (tic-tac-toe and 4-in-a-row) work on the Air (Windows) player application. For Android you can also use our flash Android application instead of the native Android application (it is not as good as the native application, but can run the 2 last games).

These 2 games are 2 players game.

Now, in order to play any of the games, after you broadcast them to your screen, you need to have 2 players:
