The game of Mill, also commonly called Nine Men's Morris, has been dated to ancient Roman times at the very least. It is also played in three, six, and twelve-men versions. An American in Chicago copyrighted a twelve-men version in 1916, calling his game "Fig Mill." A brightly colored playing board, wooden pieces, and an illustrated box very likely helped sell his game.
