Hi, I'm a Python beginner; here is one of my first projects (Tic-Tac-Toe game with an option of boards from 1x1 to 6x6 (it could be extended later).

Next step I have in mind is to make a bot to play with, but right now don't know fully how to begin doing it.

I'll be grateful for any tips in optimizing the code more or adding some extras to the game
