One of man's oldest strategy games. Played by princes & peasants for 3,000 years, Morris is simple enough for children, yet the strategies can interest adults. The object is to form "mills"(3-in-a-row). When a you make a mill, you can steal an opponent's piece. You win by reducing the opponent to just 2 men. Early versions were played with 9 pieces, but in the 14th century diagonal lines were added to the board and was played with 12 men.
