I am at my wit's end here! Over 2 dozen games and I've won twice, maybe 3 times. The A.I. in it is too damn perfect in predicting possible moves for 1 turn mills. I honestly don't know what I'm doing wrong. USEFUL advice would be appreciated, thank you.

Found this as well.



Rape way to win this game...

Google "Nine Mens morris web game" its the merelles link (1st)

Set the game to Roman Numerals VII (7, way better than X360's Expert mode)

Then in X360 board, DO NOT PLAY FIRST ( SELECT NO)

BET MAXIMUM!

every move X360 AI makes first (WHITE always moves first) MOVE on the MERELLES board using BLUE. Then whatever move the merelles AI makes on the website game (RED) YOU move on the X360. WINNING!

When I'm concentrating, I never have more than one drink before dinner, but I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well-made.

...How would that help him? The guy in that video only ever plays on Intermediate. The AI plays totally different on Expert. >_>

It's quite easy... let the opponent go first and lay all you counters in the mirror image of his, once all the counters are down I either win or get a stale mate 90% of the time :-)

^^^ This.

I actually tested this one out, and not only did I beat the Expert AI on the first try, but it actually helped me get a better understanding of how the game is supposed to be played. The Guru AI on that website actually makes the AI on the AC3 game look like a punk. XD
