David (Matthew Broderick) teaches Joshua the no-win game of Tic Tac Toe and, in the process, averts global thermonuclear war.

Once more, a wise-guy teenager tries to prove he’s smarter than any adult-and nearly destroys the whole world in the process-in Wargames. Computer-game aficionado Matthew Broderick inadverently taps into a hush-hush Pentagon computer, then proceeds to inaugurate his favorite game, “Global Thermonuclear War”. What we know, but Broderick doesn’t, is that the Pentagon, hoping to eliminate the chancy “human element” in the event of an actual war, has given its computer total, irreversable control over the launching of nuclear weaponry. Broderick and government official Dabney Coleman race against time to reverse the computer’s resolve to send bombers to Russia. Wargames scored a hit, especially with teenage filmgoers.

  1. Ich hab den Film schon paar mal gesehen.Aber warum ausgerechnet das Spiel?Ich weiß gar nicht,wie oft ich dabei schon Gewonnen und Verloren habe.

  2. So, basically all of this mess could be avoided if someone tried the tic tac toe demo a long time ago.

  3. Something to think that the room this one is based on is now Space Force Command.

  4. At the end with all the exploding consoles, I thought for a second that I was watching a Star Trek episode, .

  5. Joshua plays tic tac toe by himself
    thinks Why can't I win at this?
    decides to blow all the computers up in a rage quit.

  6. Yep….. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: life moves pretty fast. You don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it……..

    Oh wait wrong movie my bad

  7. why does the lady say 9 numbers when there letters in the launch code?

  8. There's a nuclear war threat, global destruction, end of life…. and you're playin tic tac toe

  9. if you look carefully there is a number and it `1704 which is part of the code that's why she is said numbers

  10. upper left corner – lower right corner – upper right corner = instigator wins = no winning play LOL

  11. So all they had to do was make a looping program to take enough memory to crash the computer?
    Also, "zero" is a string. It should have been "0"

  12. shall we play a game? Globalthermolnuclearwar.net

  13. President Donald J Trump United States Of America January 20 2017

  14. yep….cpe 1704 tks which is different than the codes in the silo and the WOPR…..not sure if they saw this in the final cut but it is definitely not the right code sequence

  15. If Joshua is so smart, then why does he launch his missiles AFTER the Soviet missiles have already struck? It seems weird that the timer is scheduled for after impact. Most or all of the missiles and bombers would be destroyed on the ground..

  16. play tic tac toe…..numbers of players zero

  17. The only way to win at TTT is not to play. r/TrueTicTacToe

  18. Why people think this movie was based on a real story?

  19. Wow my computer would have gone to the blue screen of death by now.

  20. Although not in this clip, while watching the movie, I noticed the Tic-Tac-Toe game board on the NORAD officer's terminal. It is identical to the the 70's BASIC version of the game. Same exact numbering scheme for the squares.

  21. excellent part of the movie, where the woman states the number of code characters, very suspenseful.

  22. why was the launch codes already printed on the machine ?

  23. When I first watched this movie I was shivering in chills and fear and shock as I went along with the suspense. I just watched this movie again last week, and this time I wasn’t like that because I had seen the whole story and not a fifth of the movie like the first time. I think I got so freaked the first time because of the magnitude of the plot situation combined with the suspense of the numbers going up and the Tic-Tac-Toe going faster. Also because back then I looked at movies as real. Real in that I treated the story as important. Why did humanity create middles that are as powerful as 100’s of the bongs we dropped on Japan? Why create something that would destroy so much? Even if it was your enemy, this destruction is on the scale of Satan’s apocalypse. Are people saying we don't even need Lucifer to come destroy us?

  24. You actually can win at tic-tac-toe. It all depends on the first and second moves. X and O would have to put the marks in one of the corners to win. Otherwise, it will be a draw. I guess Joshua didn't figure that out..

  25. "C'mon, learn goddammit!", such desperation in his voice.

  26. I love how the professor hesitates for a couple seconds before telling how to get the computer to play against itself. Do I really want to stop nuclear holocaust…. fine, I guess so

  27. Gotta say, the editing in this scene is on point. Especially 1:25 to 1:29. It actually tries to fool you that the missile ignited for just the smallest fraction of a second.

  28. CPE1704TKS This is Trump's twitter account password.

  29. "I'd piss on a spark plug if I thought it'd help!"
    "After careful consideration, I have concluded that your new defense system SUCKS!"
    Best lines from this movie.

  30. after saving the world Broderrick would go on to kill

  31. If you play tic tac toe logically (i.e. anticipating the other player's moves, and also accounting for geometrical symmetries like flipping or rotating the same game) the number of permutations is actually very small, so it is a bit over-dramatized how many times this computer would play it to learn it cannot be won between two logical players. Even if you count permutations of winning/losing there are only about 200000 possible combinations, which even in the 80s was a relatively low count for a supposed 'super computer' of the time.

  32. Could they have changed the code each time the computer found one?

  33. Came here from Mathologer. The last letter should have locked in a lot quicker.

  34. And this folks is why machines should never ever been in complete control of military and weapons of mass destruction

  35. 1983, year of nuclear films, Special Bulletin, War Games, The Day After and Testament.

  36. They should make a movie that would connect wargames with terminator. Like a backstory on how the WOPR gets replaced with skynet
