Hi everyone,

This is a game that can be played with an Othello set.
The aim is to form an 8-in-a-row with your pieces while stopping your opponent from doing the same.
You can also capture pieces in a manner vaguely similar to Othello.


Full Rules:

Having played many games, there seems to be no 'overpowered' strategy.

Please comment if you think any rules should be changed/added or if you would like a more in-depth explanation or examples.

Edit:
Fixed typos
Removed basic strategy and unneeded rules

The rules have some basic grammar errors, which can you pick up by just reading them out aloud.

One thing that is not clear is:

Quote:
If two players pass consecutively, the outer-ring of pieces (i.e. all of the pieces on the edge of the board) is removed and play continues. If two players 



This implies that the game can be played by more than two players... Did you mean "If both players..." And what if they continue to pass? Does the game end? Is it even necessary to allow passing by both players?

Fixed all the typos and removed some unnecessary/untested rules
