Turn the tables, and the tiles, on your opponent?
Create a bot to play our version of the classic Reversi and Othello games.
Play starts with a blank board and you will be randomly allocated the player colour dark or light.
Dark must place a piece with the dark side up on the board, in such a position that there exists at least one straight (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) occupied line between the new piece and another dark piece, with one or more contiguous light pieces between them.
After placing the piece, dark turns over (flips, captures) all light pieces lying on a straight line between the new piece and any anchoring dark pieces.
