Q: The case ends if 3 X tokens are in a row due to the Tic-Tac-Toe event. Do the other game endings still apply?
A: Yes. This is an additional ending. You will also end the game if the suspect reaches the “Escaped!” space of the escape track; if there are not enough ideas remaining to remove from the game when required to do so by an event; you do not have a movement card to draw at the end of a player’s turn; or you do not have enough incoming clues to fill all players’ hands.
Q: Do I have to manage a tic-tac-toe game for the rest of the campaign?
A: Yes. For the rest of the campaign (or until directed otherwise), clear the tic-tac-toe board and place an X on the center space. You will also place X tokens as triggered by the rules of the Tic-Tac-Toe event. Only if/when there are 3 X tokens in a row will flip the new event (75) and follow the instructions.
