About the course

In this course, you will build a peer-to-peer game on Solana, Tic-Tac-Toe. The game will be made using the Anchor framework and will include a front-end interface for users to interact with the game. The game will be deployed on the Solana Devnet and use the Solana Wallet Adapter for user authentication and token payments. Our front end will display player stats, game history, and a leaderboard. Additionally, we will allow players to mint a Trophy NFT after winning some number of games.
