How To Play MuTorere - the historic Maori strategy game from Aotearoa!

In the 1850s, Europeans colonized the island group called "Aotearoa" by the natives. (They renamed it New Zealand.) When they arrived, they found the Maori playing a game called MuTorere. It seemed like a simple puzzle, but baffled the settlers. The game's popularity was rekindled in the 1970s, and is once again a challenging strategy game in the Peg Pastimes series.
