X & O
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
players 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.
