        • Choose a color for you and your opponent.
        • Pick a style for the pieces.
    • Basic rules
      • The field comprises 64 spaces of alternating colors.
        • The game begins with 4 disks in alternating colors already placed on the board.
        • Each player can only lay disks on a space of their color.
        • The game ends when all 64 spaces are filled in.
      • Lay pieces on the field in a way that will allow you to reverse your opponent’s pieces.
        • To reverse pieces, they must be between any of your pieces.
        • All the opponent’s pieces found between one of your pieces can be reversed, even if they form different rows.
        • You can only move your pieces where you can reverse another opponent’s pieces.
      • Keep laying disks until all the spaces are filled in.
        • The player with the most number of spaces filled in with their disks at the end of the game is the winner.
    • Strategy
      • Having more pieces at the start of the game offers no long-term advantage:
        • Even if you have a lot of pieces now, you may eventually lose those pieces if you don’t secure them.
        • Instead, focus on seizing the strategic advantage in the long term.
        • Keep your pieces scarce. Capture fewer pieces at first to give your opponent very little to capture.
      • Head to the corners.
        • By capturing a corner, your rows cannot be converted by your opponent.
        • Remember that seizing a corner does not guarantee victory. Still, it’s a good way to defend yourself in the long term.
        • Conversely, be careful to not cede the corners to your enemy by laying a piece in front of the corner & enabling the corner play.
      • Force your opponent’s hand.
        • Stop your opponent from taking strategically advantageous moves. This way, you’ll keep them from stealing your moves.
        • Make moves that keep your opponent from getting any valuable moves that they can use against you.
          • Limiting your pieces in the beginning is one way of doing this.
          • Not placing a piece adjacent to the corner prevents your opponent from capturing the corner.
        • Don’t let your opponent do the same to you.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like strategy board games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
