Othello(or Reversi ) is the trading name of a much older board game.
this game has become very popular on apps as much as in board format.
Othello can only be played as a 2 player game.
Made up of 8 rows and 8 columns, the board is populated with pieces from both players in turn.
Each player’s pieces will be of one colour with the most common occurrence being black and white.
How to Play Othello
Players battle to finish the game with more of their own pieces on the board than their opponent. The game is classed as finished when there are no spaces left on the board or there are no more possible legal moves for either competitor
Both players begin the game on the board in the four centre squares. colours are connected vertically or horizontally so a miniature chequered pattern is made.
generally ,the person using black chips must make the first move.
Both players take it in turns to make their move which consists of placing one piece down in a legally acceptable position and then turning any of the opposing player’s pieces where applicable.
A legal move is one that consists of, for example, a black piece being placed on the board that creates a straight line (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) made up of a black piece at either end and only white pieces in between.
When a player achieves this, they must complete the move by turning any white pieces in between the two black so that they line becomes entirely black.
This turning action must be completed for every legal turning line that is created with the placing of the new piece.
It goes without say that while the example assumes the use of black as the moving player, it is applicable both ways.
Players will then continue to move alternately until they get to the end of the game and a winner is decided.
