Mills(Nine Men's Morris) is an abstract strategy board game for two players that emerged from the Roman Empire. Each player has nine pieces, or "men", which move among the board's twenty-four spots. The object of the game is to leave the opposing player with fewer than three pieces or no legal moves.
The game begins with an empty board. Players take turns placing their pieces on empty spots. If a player is able to form a straight row of three pieces along one of the board's lines (i.e. not diagonally), he has a "mill" and may remove one of his opponent's pieces from the board; removed pieces may not be placed again. Players must remove any other pieces first before removing a piece from a formed mill. Once all eighteen pieces have been used, players take turns moving.
To move, a player slides one of his pieces along a board line to an empty adjacent spot. If he cannot do so, he has lost the game.
As in the placement stage, a player who aligns three of his pieces on a board line has a mill and may remove one of his opponent's pieces, avoiding the removal of pieces in mills if at all possible. Any player reduced to two pieces is unable to remove any more opposing pieces and thus loses the game.
Once a player is reduced to three pieces, his pieces may "fly" to any empty spots, not only adjacent ones.
九子棋(Nine Men's Morris)是一個非常古老的智力遊戲。其曆史甚至可以追溯到公元前1400多年的古埃及時代。棋盤有24個格點, 對弈雙方各有九個棋子, 輪流下到棋盤的空位上。如果一方有三個棋子連成一線, 也就是形成一個mill, 就可以選擇吃掉對方的一個棋子。被吃的棋子不可以是位于對方所形成的mill之內, 除非對方所有棋子都形成了mill。在九個棋子都布放到棋盤上以後, 可以沿棋盤上的線條移動到相鄰的位置來形成mill以吃掉對方的棋子。一個mill可以開開合合重複使用。如果一方所剩下的棋子只有三個時, 棋子可以「飛」到任何位置而不受只能移動到相鄰位置的限制。當一方只剩下兩個棋子或者他的所有棋子都不能移動時就算輸。
