Nine Men’s Morris

The ancient board game known variously as Morelles, Merry Peg and Mills, is now usually called Nine Men’s Morris. This name comes from:

A) A London inn
B) A medieval field sport
C) A musical instrument
D) A traditional dance

Your answer — B) A medieval field sport — was incorrect.

One of the oldest games in the world, Nine Men’s Morris is still played throughout Europe, and, in varying forms, is also known in China, Africa, and South America. The name comes from a supposed resemblance between the movements of each player’s nine stones and those of English Morris dancers.
