If you want to make some extra money on the side, play 12 Men’s Morris, a gambling game in Assassin’s Creed 3. You can follow these tips to beat your opponents every time you play the game:

Always take your turn first. This way, you get to set up the board according to your liking instead of reacting to your opponent’s moves.

Put your first piece in such a position where it can be a good base of 3 in a row chains. The centre row is usually the best starting spot.

Try to block your opponent’s chains whenever you can. Furthermore, try to use a minimum number of your pieces (i.e. 1) to block your opponent’s chains.

Try to set up two chains of 2 in a row at the same time. In this way, you can have another chain ready to be completed even if your opponents block one of your chains.

Try to set up these chains in such a way that you leave your nemesis no choice in the matter; he may block one of your chains only for you to complete another one.

Keep in mind that moving one of your pieces out of an already built 3 in a row chain is a perfectly legal move. It even counts as another chain when you move the third piece back to its original place. Use this tactic to remove a piece from your opponent.

Stick to removing your opponent’s pieces in this 12 Men’s Morris game instead of blocking your opponent’s moves. The blocking strategy only makes the game harder by inviting unwarranted risks into the fold.

Finally, start your gambling career by betting small. When you get the hang of the game start to bet big.
