Round Merels
Ruleset: Blümlein (Blumlein)


See the game Round Merels for more details.


Suggested by C. Blümlein.


These rules are based on the known Three Men's Morris game as applied to the commonly-found circular pattern at Roman sites by C. Blümlein.


Three pieces per player. Players take turns placing their pieces on a spot where the lines intersect. They then take turns moving one piece to an adjacent empty spot. The first player to place three pieces in a row wins the game.


Blümlein 1918: 101-102.
