Description

Liu Tsi is a simple game of alignment played in China during the seventeenth century, but which is likely much older.

Rules

3x3 intersecting lines, with diagonals. Three pieces per player. Players alternate turns placing a piece on an empty spot on the board. Once all of the pieces are placed, the players alternate turns moving a piece to an empty adjacent spot along the lines. The first player to place three pieces in a line wins.

Murray 1951: 42.
