This is a simple strategy game that had been spread throughout the ancient world and has still followers up today (is similar to the tic- tac- toe).

It was played by two players on a shaded surface that had the shape of a circle with eight equidistant rays or of a square with its segment axis and sometimes its diagonals. Thus it was created at the section points of the lines nine positions for the pawns.

The players were holding each by three pawns (of different colour or type such as black and white pebbles, peas and beans, nuts and acorns, etc.) and they were trying to put them alternately in order to form a straight line or prevent the opponent from accomplishing this. Then they were moving the pawns alternately until any of them achieves the formation of a straight line.
