¡Tres en raya! What did you tell me that was the English name for this game?

My question is noughts means Tres en raya. At leas that was the meaning I found in the online dictionary.


I'd like to know the real meaning of the word

In the US, a tie game is called a "cat game" or "cat" for short.

Remember that the word "naught" is often used to refer to the number "0", thus "naughts and crosses", although I've never heard it called that. Only "tic tac toe"....
