Traditional Games

Nine Mens Morris

Nine Mens Morris is also known as Merrills. The game dates back possibly thousands of years and the characteristic shape of the board has been found carved into ancient temples and the wooden seats in abbeys used by monks. The game implemented here has three squares with lines joining the centres of the four sides. Each player has nine pieces which can move along the lines. Creating a row of three pieces (a mill) allows a piece belonging to the opponent to be removed.

Fox and Geese

Fox and geese was another popular medieval game. Played on a board with 33 positions, a flock of geese and a fox. To win the game the geese need to surround the fox preventing it from moving whereas the fox needs to capture enough geese so it is not possible for the geese to win.
