NINE MEN'S MORRIS
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, as in checkers, no legal moves.
Placing the pieces:
The game begins with an empty board. Players take turns placing their pieces on empty spots. If a player is able to form a row of three pieces along one of the board's lines,
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.
Moving the pieces:
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.
What's New in Version 1.5
code optimization and fixed crashes
Fly works sporadically
Fly will sometimes work for you, most of the time it does not allow you to win in fly mode. Also computer player will constantly repeat a move, back and forth when in a jockeying position, infinately until you make a move it can capitalize on. needs a rule for only so many repeat moves before you auto lose.
It crashes all the time! Like once per game! When you get three in a row, it doesn't let you take off whatever piece you want, it only gives you the option of taking off certain ones. And sometimes you get three in a row and it won't let you take off any piece! Don't waste your time or iPhone's memory downloading this piece of crap! I would rate it 0 stars if I could. I mean, Nine Men's Morris is a great game, but well, to put it frankly, this game is a sucky piece of stupid crap.
1. The computer makes mills before it is allowed to, and it's somehow allowed
2. It crashes as soon as you try to change the difficulty
3. I never got to either make a mill or capture a piece because the computer will block off all your routes and then make the same mill over and over again (which isn't allowed) until you lose
