I tend to use either just "Morris" or "Merels" as the generic term for
the family. "Nine Men's Morris" has a strong connotation of the specific
(nine piece per side) game, so I avoid it when talking about the family
in general...

Random Quote du Jour:

"In many respects the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights
and the
 American Dream are, in their hour of triumph, as strong as ever. But in
 way they are weaker: the collapse of communism has robbed them of an
 against which they have been explicitly contrasted for more than half a 
 century. For Manichaeans, which means for many Americans, the world has
 black and white; with the blackness gone, the whiteness now shines
 less brightly."
