Nine Men's Morris Rules

The game is played in two phases (described below). Whenever a player gets three pieces in a row (this is called a "Mill"), they can remove one of the opponent's pieces from the board. A player wins when they reduce their opponent to two pieces or their opponent cannot make a legal move.

Phase 1

The game begins with an empty board. During the first phase of the game players place their pieces on the board. If a player forms a Mill (three pieces in a row), then they can remove one opponent's piece. Once all the pieces have been placed, phase two begins.

Phase 2

During phase 2, players move a piece to an adjacent point on the board.

Tip: You can "break" a Mill by moving a piece out of the Mill. Then you can move the piece back on the next turn to reform the Mill and remove another of your opponent's pieces.

Fun Fact: This game was likely played by the Ancient Egyptians and the Ancient Romans.

Fun Fact: This game is sometimes called Mills or Cowboy Checkers.

This game should work on all platforms including safari and mobile (we hope, but make no guarantees).

Note: Don't play any game for too long and be sure to take plenty of breaks!
