The objective is to have a majority of your colored pieces showing at the end of the game, turning over as many of your opponent's pieces as possible.
Basic rules of the game:
1. 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.
2. You win when you have the majority of colored pieces on the board at the end of the game.
