Named after the Shakespeare play due to its traditional black and white pieces Othello was invented in England in the late 1800's. Designed as a simplified version of Go, Othello (or Reversi) offers a fun challenge for all ages.
Initially the board is empty except for 4 pegs - 2 of each color- placed in the central square on opposing corners. On each turn a player places a peg of their color onto the board in such a way as to capture one or more of the opponent's pegs, if you can't capture a peg you must skip your turn. Pegs are captured when a peg placed on the board sandwiches one or more of your opponents pegs between two pegs of your own color. Pegs can be captured horizontally, vertically and diagonally.
The game is over when the board is full or neither player can move, the player with the most pegs of their color wins.
The board allows you to play another Game: Solitaire.
At the beginning of the game the peg in the center of the board is removed. Moves are made by jumping a peg over an adjacent peg, removing each peg as you pass over it. The aim of the game is to remove all the pegs until only one peg is left in the center of the board.
A great gift that makes an elegant decoration for any home or office.
