Three Men's Morris






Played around the world, this is a smaller version of Nine Men's Morris, an alignment game that is still played today. It may appear in texts dating to the time of Confucius in China, as well as in Roman sources. Is it played on a board of 3x3 intersection lines with diagonals. Play occurs on the intersections of the lines. Each player has three pieces. Play begins with each player placing pieces on empty points. If they make three in a row along the lines, they win. Once all pieces are place, players take turns moving pieces one spot to an adjacent point along the lines trying to make three in a row.
