The Philippine game Tapatan has the same objective as Nine Hole: get your three counters in a row, but in Tapatan you put your counters on the corners of the board and once you've put your pieces down, you can only move a piece along one of the lines to an unoccupied space (a space is a point where lines meet)

Here's how the board looks.

 

Here black has white trapped.

 

White takes its only move.

 

And Black wins.
