This is the 6 men version of Nine Men's Morris. The board is smaller but the game play is actually the same. The game begins with the two players taking turns to put one piece on the board. If a player manages to put 3 of his pieces in a straight line, then he can remove one of the opponent's pieces. After all the pieces are put, the players take turns to move one of his pieces to a connected dot. Again when 3 of the same player's pieces align in a straight line, the player can remove one of his opponent's pieces. When a player has only 3 pieces left, he can move his pieces not only to a connected dot, but also to any vacant dot. The game ends when one of the players is left with only 2 pieces, or when he cannot move.
