Well there would be a possibility of 31,896 slides to make up for most moves in the game. But thats unlikely - if possible, try to pile up all the possible moves on the slide using triggers - trigger the click of one of the 9 to something that happens within the slide, until the animation gets too complicated for you to understand then link it outwards to more slides.

The one easiest (and hardest) solution; VBA. It offers a smaller size overall and fewer slides.

Scripting is difficult to learn and takes quite a while to figure everything out. Otherwise, using slides for everything would be tedious.

Unfortunately, you need scripting to do most anything that isn't a maze game or gadget. Tic-Tac-Toe may be simple, but it's actually surprisingly hard.

Sorry I can't help much other than suggest VBA coding. I wish you luck!
