Buy this wonderfully crafted Tic Tac Toe board game (also known as ‘noughts and crosses’) featuring beautiful playing pieces modelled after whales and dolphins. This Tic Tac Toe board game will make the perfect gift for lovers of marine wildlife. We have substituted the noughts and crosses for dolphins and whales, which have been hand-cast and hand-painted in incredible detail, showcasing these species in all their beauty and grace. As this is our smallest board game, it is the perfect option for shoppers with limited space and budget. 


This Tic Tac Toe game consists of a board and playing pieces, both of which have been cast by hand in polystone (a mixture of resin and crushed stone), from a hand-made mold. Thereafter, the board and playing pieces are hand-painted in exquisite detail by our skilled team of local community artists, using Winsor and Newton oil and acrylic paints. The crafting process from beginning to completion takes approximately four (4) hours


Pieces: 30-50mm (height)

Board: 16cm x 16cm x 2cm (unpacked)

Packaging: 18cm x 18cm x 6cm

Weight: 0.9-1.1kg (fully packed)


We take the utmost care in packing our gorgeous Tic Tac Toe game, such that it is delivered to you safely and in its entirety after the shipping process. The playing board is wrapped in protective bubble wrap. The playing figures are kept secure in zip lock bags. The board and playing figures are placed inside a single walled cardboard box. The box is then filled with polystyrene packaging worms to protect the board and figures from damage.
