Description

Nine Holes is an alignment game played at least since the seventeenth century in Great Britain, but likely goes back to the Roman Empire.

Rules

3x3 intersecting lines. Three pieces per player. Players alternate turns placing pieces on an empty spot on the board. When all pieces are placed, players alternate turns moving a piece to any empty spot on the board. The first player to place their pieces in an orthogonal row along the lines wins.

Murray 1951: 39.
