Nine Men's Morris

Nine Men's Morris is an ancient board game that uses \(9\) white pieces and \(9\) black pieces, whose origin is unknown.


The game begins with an empty board. Players take turns placing their pieces in one of the available intersections. Each player seeks to form mills, ie, form a horizontal or vertical line with \(3\) of his pieces, which may take an opponent's piece from the board of his choice, provided it does not belong to a mill. When all the pieces have been placed on the board, each player moves one of his pieces to a free adjacent intersection, not being allowed to "jump" over other pieces. If a player has only \(3\) pieces on the board, he can "fly" their remaining pieces from any point to any vacant point. 

The game ends when one of the players has less than \(3\) pieces, losing the game.
