- Board Game for one or two players
Choose to play against a friend or against the computer artificial intelligence.
Invented in 1883 Reversi is played on a 8x8 grid board with 64 rounded pieces, each one white on one side and black on the other side; a player starts with two pieces facing black and the oponent with two facing white crossed in the center of the board.
The players take turns to place one of the chosen or asigned colored pieces on the board, placing each piece requires strategy; When you place a piece and one or more aligned pieces of the oponent get bounded by pieces of your color, then all pieces on that line or lines will be turned over to your color. It is like conquering land line by line. The lines that you conquer (or bound) can be in straight or diagonal lines, so many pieces can be bounded in more than one direction just by placing one piece.
The game ends when all 64 pieces are placed on the board, and the winner is... the one with majority of same color pieces.
On 1971 a variant of reversi was patented under the name Othello or Othello board Game.
