I'm Trying to beat Lyle at the inn to get the trophy. (the only place to do this, right?)
Is there special rules to moving peices when only a few are left on the board?
I have totally been in position to win and Lyle/Computer Ai starts moving his peices where ever they need to go. Literally, in any direction it seems, and across the whole board.
Talk about WTF!!!!! Has anyone esle experienced this?

The rules change when you get down to 3 pieces -- you are allowed to move a piece to any open space. Generally that means that, when you get down him down to 3 pieces, the best you can get is a tie.

The best way to win is to trap him without a move when he has 4 pieces left.

Yeah, Nine Man's Morris at the inn is quite difficult. Though since your just playing it for a trophy I suggest that this (http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/621797-assassins-creed-iii/64621215) method may help you out?
