I've been told that I must do two things in order to win hard games in Othello (Reversi):
- Take the corners
- Do not take the X squares, as they are the worst squares on the board.
We all know that we have to take the corners. I am tired of keep hearing that stupid hint. What I want to know is how force my opponent into taking the x squares and the squares around the corners so I can use his pieces to jump into the corners. What squares do I have to take? what strategy to follow?
