Nine Men's Morris Strategy Game
Nine Men's Morris Strategy game was first played in the Roman Empire, the two players would places nine stones along one of two diagonal lines with the target to block the opponent's movements. The game is also known as nine-man morris, mill, mills, and the mill game.
The Nine Men's Morris Strategy board has a unique grid layout with 24 holes, and 9 pegs for each player. Each player tries to create "mills" (three of their colored pages lining up in horizontally or vertically. Yes, just like in tic-tac-toe).
The game has two phases, first players placing their pegs on the board, and second when players are moving on the board.
The game starts with an empty board, each player in his turn place one of his pegs on the board. If a player successfully creating a straight line vertically or horizontally with three of his pegs, he formed a "mill", which give him the opportunity to remove one of their opponent's pegs from the board (this page is out of the game).
After the players placed all their pegs on the board, the second phase start. With the same goal of creating a "mill", players now can move their pegs to an adjacent point in any direction on the grid line.
More rules: Players can't jump over pegs. A player can get in and out of a mill. When a player has left with three pegs, he may move anywhere on the board (from any point to any empty point). He is not confined to points adjacent to his remaining three pegs.
The Nine Men's Morris comes in a high-quality handcrafted wooden board with a convenient lid to contain all the pieces and ensure that you can enjoy this game again and again.
