Nine Men's Morris


Play Nine Men's Morris, a game as old as checkers and chess, played by Roman Emperors and Medieval Knights to test their strategy skills! Challenge a friend in the two player mode or test your skills against the artificial intelligence.

The game consists of two phases: placement and movement. Each player is given nine stones to start with. During the placement phase each player takes turns placing these stones on the board. If a player connects three of their stones they are allowed to remove a stone of the opposing player. After all stones have been placed, the movement phase beings. During the movement phase, each player is allowed to move one of their stones to an adjacent spot. Just like in the placement phase, if a player connects three stones, they are allowed to remove a stone from the opposing player. If a player is reduced to two stones, the game is over and the other player wins.

Nine Men's Morris is also known as Nine Man Morris, Mill, Mills, Merels, Merelles, and Merrills.

Too easy: missing key rule Too easy. It's missing one essential rule I always learned: once three stones have formed a mill, those three stones cannot be used in the same mill in the same place until you've made another mill elsewhere. Otherwise you can just sit there breaking and making the same mill over and over. Also, does not work on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 2014; does not register touches on the board.
