Nine Men's Morris could easily be one of the oldest, still played board games in the world. Its been found scratched into the roof of a 1400 B.C. Egyptian temple, the ruins of Troy, in a Bronze Age tomb in Ireland, and in the burial ship of a Viking king. "Morris" seems to have come from the French name for the game, "merelles".[1]
