Les neuf hommes de Morris

Nine Men's Morris is an indoor form of quoits, also known as merels. The
basic equipment is a flat board marked out with three squares and having 24
holes (called stations) in it. Each player has nine pegs which he aims to
get into a row of three whilst trying to prevent the opponents from doing
the same by 'taking' them before they formed a row.

Je suis désolée, je n'en trouve pas l'équivalent en français, mais comme il s'agit d'un nom propre tu pourrais peut-être le garder.
