About the Game:

Six Men's Morris is a variant of the strategy game Nine Men's Morris. Nine Men's Morris most likely originated in the Roman Empire. It is not certain exactly how old the game is as there is conflicting evidence regarding its origin. Estimates on the game's age vary from about 2 000 to 3 400 years old.

Aim:

To develop strategic thinking skills while learning Multiplication & Division Facts and have a little fun doing it.

What you Need:

2 Players
1 Six Men's Morris Game Board
6 counters of different colors for each player

How to Play:

1. The game begins with an empty board and each player in possession of 6 counters.
2. The player with the longest hair goes first.
3. Players take turns either:

- placing a counter on an empty space on the board and stating the answer to the algorithm covered aloud to their opponent.

or

- sliding a counter already on the board one space horizontally or vertically along the line to the next empty space. They then read the algorithm landed on to their opponent and answer it aloud.

5. Each time a player gets three or more of their counters in a row along a single line (this is traditionally called a 'mill') they must choose one of their opponent's counters and remove it from the board. The removed piece takes no further part in the game.

The Two Mill Rule - If by sliding ONE piece TWO MILLs are formed, then TWO of the opponent's pieces MUST be removed.

Illegal Moves:

1. Diagonal moves are NOT permitted.
2. Placing a piece on top of another is not allowed.
3. A player cannot jump a counter over another counter.
4. Moving a piece one space and then moving it back to the same space on the next move is also not permitted. NB Even to try this is considered 'poor form'.
5. Forming a mill, moving a piece out of the mill and then moving it back on the next turn is illegal.

How to Win:

- The player who is left with 2 or fewer pieces on the board loses the game.
