The Task Here is to Make a Tic Tac Toe board layout using Turtle Graphics in Python. For that lets first know what is Turtle Graphics.

Turtle graphics

In computer graphics, turtle graphics are vector graphics using a relative cursor upon a Cartesian plane. Turtle is drawing board like feature which let us to command a turtle and draw using it.

Features of turtle graphics:

  • backward(length): moves the pen in the backward direction by x unit.
  • right(angle): rotate the pen in the clockwise direction by an angle x.
  • left(angle): rotate the pen in the anticlockwise direction by an angle x.
  • penup(): stop drawing of the turtle pen.
  • pendown(): start drawing of the turtle pen.

Approach

  • import the turtle modules.
import turtle

  • Get a screen to draw on.
ws = turtle.Screen()

The screen will look like this.

Screen

  • Define an instance for turtle.
  • Here, i had manually set the speed of the turtle to 2.
  • For a drawing a Tic Tac Toe board first we have to make an outer Square.
  • Then we will Make inner lines of the square which will ultimately make up the board.
  • For inner lines i had used penup(),goto() and pendown() method to take the pen up and then take it down at certain coordinates.
  • The inner lines will make up the Tic Tac Toe board perfectly.
     

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

Python3




import turtle
 
 
# getting a Screen to work on
ws=turtle.Screen()
 
# Defining Turtle instance
t=turtle.Turtle()
 
# setting up turtle color to green
t.color("Green")
 
# Setting Up width to 2
t.width("2")
 
# Setting up speed to 2
t.speed(2)
 
# Loop for making outside square of
# length 300
for i in range(4):
    t.forward(300)
    t.left(90)
 
 
# code for inner lines of the square
t.penup()
t.goto(0,100)
t.pendown()
 
t.forward(300)
 
t.penup()
t.goto(0,200)
t.pendown()
 
t.forward(300)
 
t.penup()
t.goto(100,0)
t.pendown()
 
t.left(90)
t.forward(300)
 
t.penup()
t.goto(200,0)
t.pendown()
 
 
t.forward(300)

 

 

Output:
