The object of the game is to have the majority of disks turned to display your color when the last playable empty square is filled.

There are the black discs and the white discs. Black goes first.

On Microsoft Windows, the board is a 8x8 checkerboard. There are 2 black discs and 2 whites discs diagonal to each other. That is the starting position.

When you play reverse, you need to put your disc adjacent to a white disc(s), where there is your color on the other side of the opponent's discs. When they place it, the other players disc turns to your color. This game needs much strategy.
