Nine Men's Morris

Archeological evidence shows that this game has been widely played since ancient times.

Found amongst the ruins of the first city of Troy and at Kurana, Egypt, at a site dated from around 1400 B.C.

Nine Men's Morris is also a game that enjoyed considerable popularity among the Vikings. Boards have also been found carved into the seats in English Cathedrals as used by bored monks.


Many variations of this game have existed, the most elaborate of which developed by courtiers in Italy, though the rules for many of these have been lost.
