Description

Nine Men's Morris is a player vs computer, mouse controlled, implementation of a strategy board game that dates back to the Roman Empire.

The is played on a board with concentric squares marked on it, these are connected by lines. The game is turn based. It starts with players placing their pieces/men at intersections of lines and corners of the squares. Whenever a player completes a 'mill', or line of three pieces they can remove one of their opponent's pieces. When all pieces have been placed the second phase begins, here players move their pieces around the board and once again, whenever a player completes a line of three men they can remove one of their opponent's men. A player wins when their opponent is reduced to two men, because then they can no longer make a line of three, or when an opponent has no more legal moves to make.

This implementation gives the player the options to play Five Men's Morris, Six Men's Morris, Nine Men's Morris, and Twelve Men's Morris, the Five and Six men variants are played on the same board but the Nine and Twelve man variants each use a different board.

The games play in a small window, are mouse controlled, have optional music and sound effects plus an internet play option. The strength of the AI opponent can be varied, there is a save game feature and the game keeps track of the moves played and has the option to print these.
