Mills board game by LITE Games: Play the popular game of Mills on iPhone and iPad with online multiplayer now for free.

Mills is a hugely popular game throughout the world, characterized by the fact it is so easy to learn – and it’s even older than chess. Nowadays the game that's also well known as Nine Men's Morris, The Mill Game, or Cowboy Checkers is a national pastime in many countries. Variations of the game include Morabaraba (South Africa), Char Bar (India), or Tapatan (Philippines). The aim of the game is to hit as many enemy stones as possible by forming so-called Mills (3 stones in a row). However, you can also block your opponent by cleverly moving your own stones around, rendering them unable to make a move.

1. How can I use the offline multiplayer mode and play with another person on the same device?

Please go to the menu (the circle with the three bars in the top left corner) and go to "Settings". Now switch "Offline: Human" to "On". When you go back to the start menu, the offline mode is set to "Human vs Human".

2. Where can I change the difficulty and rules for offline mode?

Please go to the menu (the circle with the three bars in the top left corner) and go to "Settings". In the box for "Rule Settings" set "Standard Rules" to "Off". Now you can change the rules and difficulty settings for offline mode as you wish.

3. Why does an ad appear during a match and the game is over afterwards?

Adverts are only shown if the server classifies a game as over. Reasons for this could be that a player loses connection, leaves the game, is blocked and can't make any move or the game was won regularly. The text that is shown in the game summary afterwards gives you an idea of what happened.

I played this game as I was growing up in Europe and now at 93 years of age I still love to play against this wonderful computer program. Try it, you may become addicted as I am.

Hello Fred,
Thank you very much for your kind words! We are happy to hear that you enjoy playing Mills. Have fun!

Addictive little strategy game


Great strategy game with a very nice graphics. Easy to learn, not so easy to win.

Place chips at intersections of lines on the board. Just try to get your opponent down to two chips, by lining up 3 of your chips consecutively, in a row or column, in order to select an opponent's chip to remove. With two chips remaining, your opponent can no longer line up 3 chips & you win.

It threw me off at first though. You both start with a pile of chips & take turns placing them *anywhere* on the board (that isn't already occupied by a chip). Once you & your opponent have placed all your chips on the board, you may now only move *one intersection at a time*. You can't jump over chips or slide two spaces at a time (except when you're down to your *last three chips* & then you can jump anywhere there's not a chip). So here's where the real strategy comes in. Plan ahead & anticipate where your opponent is trying to line up three or where they're going to try to block you as you're lining up yours.




I love this. I looked at many mill games and found out this to be the best. The game does not cheat, and the normal mode a the perfect mode. I like how you can play with the community, a person next to you or the phone. You can also change the rules to fit you. Your profile can be changed to fit you as well. 😊🙂😊
