    Create a tic-tac-toe game using HTML, CSS and jQuery

    Setting up the board using an HTML table

    We're going to be creating a tic-tac-toe board using an HTML table with three rows and each row containing three cells which creates a 9x9 board for us. The styling for it will be in our style CSS file. We'll also include a link to jQuery because our game logic we'll require some jQuery functions.
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <title> Tic-Tac-Toe </title>    
    <script src="" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>  
    <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />     
      // jQuery code goes here		
    <table id='board'>

    Styling the board with CSS

    Our board will have some pretty basic colors and fonts.
    * {
      margin: 0; 
      padding: 0; 
    table { 
      border-collapse: collapse; 
      border-spacing: 0; 
    #board { 
      padding: 0px; 
      margin: 0 auto; 
      margin-top: 25px; 
    #board tr td { 
      width: 80px; 
      height: 80px; 
      border: 1px solid #1c1c1c; 
      font-family: Helvetica; 
      font-size: 30px; 
      text-align: center; 
    #board tr td:hover { 
      background: #e4e4e4; 
      cursor: pointer;

  • Actually, got it: Add this into your script tag:
              var space1 = $("#board tr:nth-child(1) td:nth-child(1)").html('');
              var space2 = $("#board tr:nth-child(1) td:nth-child(2)").html('');
              var space3 = $("#board tr:nth-child(1) td:nth-child(3)").html('');
              var space4 = $("#board tr:nth-child(2) td:nth-child(1)").html('');
              var space5 = $("#board tr:nth-child(2) td:nth-child(2)").html('');
              var space6 = $("#board tr:nth-child(2) td:nth-child(3)").html('');
              var space7 = $("#board tr:nth-child(3) td:nth-child(1)").html('');
              var space8 = $("#board tr:nth-child(3) td:nth-child(2)").html('');
              var space9 = $("#board tr:nth-child(3) td:nth-child(3)").html('');

  • Easy, just add a button which calls to a function to refresh the page. If we use Ajax we could refresh only the html form
