Nine Men’s Morris, known as Merrels in France and Mill in Germany is probably the best known of all medieval board games though it is part of a family that includes three, five and twelve Men’s Morris.
The two players start with all men off the board and alternately place them on the board attempting to make a row of three and preventing their opponent from doing so. If a player makes a row of three then they may remove one of their opponent’s men. Once all the men are on the board each player moves them, again to make a row of three to remove their opponent’s men.
The Morris games are games of strategy, played by people of all classes in medieval society.
Leather playing board, handmade wood disc game pieces and full instructions. Comes packed in a sturdy cardboard tube for secure transport and storage. Hand made in Wales by Gothic Green Oak.
