Mills, also known as Nine men’s morris is a very old and traditional strategy game. Although this game was being played in the Roman Empire, some similar boards have been found in an egyptian temple dating back to 1400 BCE.
Each time you align 3 of your men, you can remove one of your opponent’s men from the game.
There are two phases in the game:
- placing men: at each turn you put one men on an available position (=all intersections and corners)
- moving men: this phase starts when all the men are on the board. At your turn move one men from its position to an adjacent available position.
In order to win the game, you have to leave your opponent with less than 3 men or without any possibility to play his turn.
Invented by unknown people in ancient times.
