18 Stones (9 of each color)
Gameplay
This is a game of position where the
object is to form lines of three in a row
and in turn capture your opponent's pieces.
To begin, players take turns placing
pieces (one at a time) on any of the
vacant black line intersections.
When all the pieces are on the board,
players take turns moving their
pieces -- one at a time -- along a
straight line to an adjacent vacant
dot.
As a player moves, he or she tries to
form a mill -- three pieces in a row.
When a mill is formed, the player may
capture a piece from his or her opponent
that does not belong to a mill.
The only time a piece from a mill may
be taken is if there are no other pieces
open.
Winning
A player must take all but two of the
opponent's pieces or block his or her
opponent from moving.
