The Tic-Tac-Toe code uses the 3x3 grid of the game of the same name (also known as OXO grid). The grid is composed of 2 vertical lines and 2 horizontal lines delimiting 9 distinct spaces, ie. the character # (sharp) but in bigger.
In this grid are written the first 9 letters of the alphabet, then with crosses, the next 9, and with circles the last 8.
Each letter is then symbolized by a symbol characterizing its location in the grid: 2 to 4 lines to indicate the position of the box and a point to indicate the position of the letter.
The symbols are very similar and must be reminiscent of the ridge grid, right angles, 2 to 4 perpendicular lines accompanied by a single point having 3 possible positions (left, center, right).
The symbols look like the Pigpen cipher which is similar.
