Mu Torere

5 min | Age 6+ | 2 Players

The game of Mu Torere originated among the Maori tribes of New Zeeland (though similar games are found elsewhere). No one knows how old the game really is, but when European colonists first recorded it in the 1850s, it had been around for generations. When the game was described by the famous game historian R.C. Bell in 1969, it found a new audience and became popular once again. It's a simple looking puzzle game for two, each player attempting to trap their opponent one step at a time. MuTorere is a great alternative to tic-tac-toe to introduce players to the genre of two-player puzzle games.
