My dad had a stroke and I was trying to think of games he could play to re-engage his mind and to get his hand/eye coordination working better. I decided to make a simple Tic-Tac-Toe game that the X’s and the O’s would stay put if his hands were not steady. This is what I came up with. It is not much but hey, someone may like it.
Thanks for a lovely file. Best wishes to your dad for recovery. It can be a long road, but tactile devices such as this game will help.

What a nice set, thank you!
I wonder if you could make the pieces stat put even better by putting a steel plate under the board and embedding magnets is the playing pieces.

Are you asking if having the magnets instead of the grid or with the grid also? It would be very easy to do, just glue small magnets to the pieces and to the underside of the board.

I would add them to the set. The grid looks nice and would be missed.
(Can’t believe how many grammatical errors I have in my original question. It’s this darn autocorrect on my iPad. Sorry!)
Very nice, thank you! Not only will be it good for your dad’s hand/eye coordination, but will also give him some good company while playing it, which will also be wonderful for him.
simple Tic-Tac-Toe game
I have to make two sets for the great grans. They are of an age for it and also have troubles keeping things where they belong without knocking them about.
Thanks for the share.
Great share! Very thoughtful!
