Thinhama (Mills) is a strategy board game for two players that emerged from the Roman Empire. The game is also known as Nine Man Morris, Mill, Mills, The Mill Game, Merels, Merrills, Merelles, Marelles, Morelles and Ninepenny Marl in English. The game has also been called Cowboy Checkers and was once printed on the back of checkerboards. Nine Men's Morris is a solved game in which either player can force the game into a draw.
The board consists of a grid with twenty-four intersections or points. Each player has nine pieces. Players try to form 'mills'— three of their own men lined horizontally or vertically—allowing a player to remove an opponent's piece from the game. A player wins by reducing the opponent to two pieces (where he could no longer form mills and thus be unable to win), or by leaving him without a legal move.
The game proceeds in three phases:
- placing piece on vacant points
- moving piece to adjacent points
- (optional phase) moving piece to any vacant point when a player has been reduced to three men
Phase one: placing pieces
Thihame (Mills) or Nine Men's Morris starts on an empty board.
The game begins with an empty board. The players determine who plays first, then take turns placing their piece one per play on empty points. If a player is able to place three of his pieces in a straight line, vertically or horizontally, he has formed a mill and may remove one of his opponent's pieces from the board and the game. Any piece can be chosen for the removal, but a piece not in an opponent's mill must be selected, if possible.
Phase two: moving pieces
Players continue to alternate moves, this time moving a piece to an adjacent point. A piece may not "jump" another piece. Players continue to try to form mills and remove their opponent's pieces in the same manner as in phase one. A player may "break" a mill by moving one of his pieces out of an existing mill, then moving the piece back to form the same mill a second time (or any number of times), each time removing one of his opponent's piece. The act of removing an opponent's piece is sometimes called "pounding" the opponent. When one player has been reduced to three pieces, phase three begins.
Phase three: "flying"
When a player is reduced to three pieces, there is no longer a limitation of moving to only adjacent points: The player's piece may "fly", "hop" or "jump" from any point to any vacant point.
At the beginning of the game, it is more important to place pieces in versatile locations rather than to try to form mills immediately and make the mistake of concentrating one's pieces in one area of the board.
An ideal position, which typically results in a win, is to be able to shuttle one piece back and forth between two mills, removing a piece every turn.
Tsoro is a game that was played by warriors to improve their enemy capturing and raiding strategies in war situations. It was also used to teach young boys and girls how to count. Kings and chiefs often settled disputes by playing Tsoro. Today it is played frequently during leisure times and sometimes competitively. Warning: it is highly addictive and "unputdownable" (maybe as addictive as angry birds and temple run ;-)).
In its original form, the game was played by digging 4 rows of small pits in the ground which were then populated with a pre-determined amount of pebbles or seeds. Each of the two players occupy two rows of pits.
Tsoro has countless variations. In this Android implementation, the game is played on a board that has 4 rows with each row containing 7 pits. At the start of the game, all pits are filled with the same number of seeds (the initial number of seeds can be selected from the options menu . The 2 top rows belong to the top player and the 2 bottom rows belong to the bottom player.
In Tsoro for Android, the top player is your Android device (CPU) or Player 2 and the bottom player is you or Player 1.
The starting player (always Player or Player 1 depending on Game mode) chooses any pit from his/her set of pits and collects all the seeds in that pit by clicking on that pit and then distributes them one per pit in the succeeding pits going in one direction (either clockwise or anti-clockwise).
This direction is maintained throughout the game. If the last seed falls into a non-empty pit in the outer row, the player collects all the seeds in that pit and redistributes them into the succeeding pits.
If the last seed falls into a pit in the inner row, the player captures all the seeds in his or her opponent's two pits in the same column as his or her pit and distributes them as before.
A player's turn ends when the last seed being distributed lands, either in an empty pit in the outer row, or in a pit in the inner row which is in the same column with an empty pit in the opponent's inner row.
The game ends when one of the two players has captured all the seeds in the pits of the other player. The winner is the player with all the seeds.
