AKA Nine Men's Morris
Triple Threat is traditionally known around the world as Mill, Mills, Merels, Merelles, Merrills, Morels, Nine Men's Morris and Morabaraba. All of these names likely derive from the Latin word merellus which means a gaming counter or piece. Triple Threat is one of the oldest board games known (dating back to ancient Rome at least) and is said to be the best of the so called "row-of-three" games. The children's pencil and paper game Tic-Tac-Toe is the simplest example of this type.
