Wow, good catch! I didn't consider his game would have left much of a
footprint, but now that I do search I find some things. Maybe I'm just
late to the game?
"A graphical-interface 3D tic-tac-toe program (4x4x4) run with the
light pen. Later, Ken had some interaction with Ron Graham and
especially Oren Patashnik about strategy for the game, but didn't
pursue this especially. The game was later solved as a win for the
first player (Patashnik, 1980)."
