Problem type
Junior 4 — Tic Tac Moe!

Griffy was about to finish the elusive A Times B problem, when Timothy Li scoffed at him and challenged him to a blind tic-tac-toe match! Griffy is playing as O and Timothy is playing as X. After a sequence of random moves, a 3 by 3 board has been filled with Os and Xs. Both Timothy and Griffy are stuck trying to get their blindfolds off (can't write a program for that unfortunately), so you decide to determine who wins to avoid 5 hours of blindfold-taking-off.

Note: A player wins if there are 3 of the same character in a row, column or diagonal. A player winning in multiple ways in one game is a valid win.

Input Specification

3 lines, representing a grid.

Output Specification

One line, output the string

  • Error, redo if both Os and Xs win,
  • Tie if neither player wins,
  • Griffy if only O wins,
  • Timothy if only X wins.

    Wait up. I got the code and everything working. I am consistently getting the 'Error, redo' and 'Tie' cases wrong. I made an echo program to get the inputs they're using. Plugging in the numbers results in the correct output for the case. Am I getting the string to output wrong? I'm outputting these strings for each respective scenario: Error, redo Tie Timothy Griffy. Keep in mind that the Griffy and Timothy cases are AC...

      You should re-read the output specifications. It says to print Error, redo if both Os and Xs win, and Tie if neither player wins.

      Your issue is in scenarios where both Os and Xs win.

    As I learned, P5 doesn't imply Timothy won all the games. -_-
