Nin Men's Morris is a very old strategy game dating from the Roman Empire. Played by two people, the basic principle of the game is to get three pieces of their own colour in a row.

The name Nine Men’s Morris seems to have originated by Shakespeare in his play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Act II, Scene I), in which Titania refers to such a board by saying, “The Nine Men’s Morris is filled up with mud”. The name also derives from the Latin word merellus, 'Gamepiece'.

This game is ideal for any activity engaged for diversion or amusement and to establish a situation that involves a contest or rivalry. Although Nine Men's Morris is based on simple rules, the game offers a countless number of strategic moves, you must have your wits about you

Nine Men's Morris is equally interesting for beginners and advanced players.
