The rules of the game
The game Reversi is a game of strategy where you try to possess the biggest territory possible. The object of the game is to have the majority of your colour discs on the board at the end of the game.
Begining of the game: Each player takes 32 discs and chooses one colour to use throughout the game. Black places two black discs and White places two white discs as shown in the following graphic. The game always begins with this setup.

A move consists of "outflanking" your opponent's discs, then flipping the outflanked discs to your colour. To outflank means to place a disc on the board so that your opponent's row of discs is bordered at each end by a disc of your colour. (A "row" may be made up of one or more discs).
Here's one example: White disc A was already in place on the board. The placement of white disc B outflanks the row of three black discs.

Then, white flips the outflanked discs and now the row looks like this:
