Rules

Othello is a game played on a board with 64 squares. The game starts with 4 pieces placed in the center of the board as shown

Players take turns placing a piece of their color in order to capture one or more of their opponents pieces between the new piece and one of their existing pieces, in straight line. Any captured pieces are flipped over to become the player’s pieces. A player may capture in more than one direction. If no move exists where the current player may capture a piece, then the player forfeits the move. The games ends when neither player has a valid move, often this is when the board is completely filled. The winner is the player with the most pieces.

The game is very close to another game Reversi.
