Use this. Will win every time.

1)Choose to start second(in AC IV)
2)place a blue chip on the board(web game) at the spot the NPC plays a chip(AC IV)
3) place your chip(AC IV) where the computer plays a orange chip(web game).
4) You'll win every time.

I hated this game in AC III and I hate this game now. I was able to defeat an intermediate opponent on my seventh try. I got the hang of the game around my third try and on my fourth try I realized how deadly the opponent can be with three pieces left (you know what I mean if you get this far). Fifth and sixth try I lost, but on my seventh I was finally able to win. It was just a lot of back and forth, I had 4 pieces and my opponent had the annoying 3. It seems my opponent just gave up and let me put 3 of my white pieces in a row so I could remove his last black piece. I was never able to beat my opponent in this game by blocking their pieces, but lord knows they did that to me.

Practice, practice, practice, with a dash of luck you could win.

I played against an expert in nine men morris yesterday and I won on the first try. I don't kow why it took me so long to realise that when the opponent is down to three, that's when he is the major threat (facepalm) so instead of destroying all your opponents pieces until he has 2 left, just trap his remaining pieces. It was easier and less frustrating. If you still have more pieces than your opponent, whittle his pieces down until he has 4 left and then try to trap him so he can't move any more. Yesterday I used my 6 remaining pieces to push my opponent into a corner in which he couldn't move anymore and I won. This was hell of a lot easier than destroying all but 2 pieces left.

This worked great. I just had to bump up the web browser game's AI to "Guru", because before that I kept getting draws.
