Morris description
Morris is an implementation of the Nine Men's Morris board game. Other names for this game are: Mills, Merrills, Morris, or Muhle in German. Nine Men's Morris, being probably 2000-3000 years old, appears to be one of the oldest board games, much older than chess. From the 12th to the 18th century, Nine Men's Morris was one of the most popular board games in Europe. However, it is still actively played today and exists in several variants, e.g., Morabaraba, which is particularly popular in South Africa.

This implementation of Nine Men's Morris supports not only the standard game, but also several rule-variants and different board layouts. You can play against the computer, or simply use the program to present the board, but play against another human opponent. The computer opponent learns from previous games and tries not to make the same mistake twice. This ensures enough variation in game-play, should you once have managed to beat the program.

Among others, the game plays the following variants:

* Lasker variant (moves are also allowed in the set-phase)
* the Mobius board
* the Windmill board
* Pentagon and Hexagon boards
* Morabaraba
* Six and Seven Men's Morris
* Tapatan, Achi, Nine Holes

Furthermore, the game supports:

* advanced AI controls to tweak AI playing style
* giving hints for good moves
* showing the principal variation
* move takeback (undo and redo)
* internationalization (English, German, Chinese)
* many board and rule variations, as well as free customization of rules
* configurable display. Morris - A Nine Men's Morris Game.
