Doublemill is the famous Nine Men's Morris game as a multiplayer version. Each player has nine stones, or "men", which move among the board's twenty-four intersections. The object of the game is to leave the opposing player with fewer than three stones or, as in checkers, no legal moves. The game begins with an empty board. Players take turns placing their stones on empty intersections. If a player is able to form a row of three stones along one of the board's lines, he has a "mill" and may remove one of his opponent's stones from the board; removed stones may not be placed again.
