Trivia

House: Because we need to take the center square to block. Referencing the TV series The Hollywood Squares (1966) and its several successors. The game is basically a giant-sized version of Tic-Tac-Toe, where the contestants listen to a celebrity answer a question and determine if it's true or false. If they're correct they "get the square." As in regular Tic-Tac-Toe, taking the center square is usually necessity. See more »
