Rules 3x3 intersecting lines. Three pieces per player. Players alternate turns placing a piece on the board.

Content " Crossroads (to triodi). A rectangle is chalked on the pavement and divided into four squares by lines drawn parallel to the other sides from the centre of one side to that of the other. The players standing at a fixed distance take each three stones and each palys in turn with the object of placing his stones in a straight line; and the one who succeeds first wins. If a stone is between two belonging to the opponent, it may not be moved and is considered blocked." Argenti and Rose 1949: 1018-1019.
