Multiple solutions

As I've seen before on this game, when there are multiple solutions, the game does not recognize the correctness of the alternative. This means that it is checking against a solution rather than the rules of the game. This is obviously problematic.

Which game are you referring to, MerlinTX? Please post a screenshot of the puzzle along with the puzzle ID. Thanks.

This week's free TicTacToe is probably the one Merlin is referring to (see attached image), #31090100347

Take a look at Columns 2 & 5. Column 5 is filled as OOXXOXOXXO and Column 2 is OOXXOXO-X-. According to the rules, No two rows or columns can have the same sequence. Therefore, Column 2 must end with -OXX. Column 1 then can be completed with -XXO which solves the puzzle.

Thank you! Really been bugging me but just couldn't see any issues. Completely forgot to check that rule for some reason.
