Rules are easy, and your understanding is best confirmed by trying...

Per turn, you have to turn at least one tile into your color. To do this, you have to enclose tiles of the opposite color inbetween the new tile you are placing and the

ones you already have on the board.

"Enclosing" means that you have to have another tile of your color on either a diagonal, vertical or horizontal line from your placed tile. The tiles of opposite color

inbetween your tiles will turn into tiles of your color.
