it's easy. All you have to do is check if a diagonal, a row, or a column contains only Xs or Os. If you find such a diagonal, row, or column, the game is over, you have a winner. else, keep going. At the end, you have code to check for a tie.

You are using "buttons" 2D array variable to hold the current status of the game, so what you need to do is to check inside the "buttons" variable if there is any consecutive same letter (except "-") up to a number of whatever you want. If there is, the owner of the letter won (in this case it is either "X" or "O").
