    Really struggling to understand the program of the game "Reversi" (which is the preliminary material). I've got some possible questions from another the thread for what might come up in the exam:

    1. More menu options (there are always more menu options... maybe the multiplayer thing mentioned below?)
    2. Scores section/ High scores (seems unlikely as it has already come up and there is no obvious structure already
    in the code to support this.)
    3. Extend board size parameters
    4. Something to do with enter name section (seems obsolete. Maybe a player1/ player2 and letters to match (so
    rather than "H" and "C" "K" and "M" or whatever.)
    5. Two player mode
    6. Loop for wrong coordinate values (The programme already loops for 0,0. Presumably because it is technically
    in the array.)
    7. Something to do with the flip def/ mechanic (ie. three ways to flip or fixing a flaw etc.)
    8. Save the game and the players turn
    9. load the game and continue playing
    10. fix the crash when you enter a letter for co-ordinates
    11. display the actual score of player, currently it just says "well done".
    12. allow diagonal capture (probably the last question which is worth 10 marks)
    13. let the player skip a turn

    ***Any help would be appreciated. Feel free to discuss.***
