Product Description

Product Description

Topple Fun Action Game Where Winning Or Losing Hangs In The Balance Of Every Move! Score Points By Completing Rows And Stacking Pieces. The More Points You Score, The Harder It Is To Keep Topple From Toppling. 2 To 4 Players.

From the Manufacturer

Othello Game: Othello is the game that takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master. The lead can change hands from play to play and strategy is everything. Play is simple. Players are represented by either black or white discs on the board. On each turn, players flank the discs of the opposing player between two of their own. Once captured, the double-sided discs are flipped over and become the opposite color. If you have a move, you have to take it. Play ends when one player can't make any more moves or the game board is full. The player with the most pieces of their color facing up wins. The more you play, the more certain strategies emerge, and the more likely you are to lead your opponent right where you want them. To celebrate its 35th anniversary, Othello features streamlined packaging, a more modern game board and storage for the pieces. Includes 64 reversible discs, game board, 2 disc holders, instruction booklet.

Othello is a classic. Unfortunately, unlike the classic boards I remember from when I was a kid, this one is particularly nasty - feels (and looks) cheap and flimsy - the board flexes when you pick up pieces - the pieces are small and smooth enough that if you keep your nails really short, happy days flipping the pieces over :-(
Love the game - hate the product itself. Wasn't exactly cheap - and for the price I expected better quality.

The actual game game board leaves something to be desired. Although the game is still the same as when I was young, and I still like it just as much as I once did, I have to say that the blue plastic board does detract from the joy of the game a bit. However, I will say that this new version is easier to take places. The game pieces sit in tracks on the side and have clear blue plastic covers that snap into place to keep the pieces where they belong. I find that the covers fit in snugly so that I can just throw the game board in the bag of things I tote to outings to keep us busy. That said, due to the less then stunning quality of the game board itself, I wouldn't pay the list price for this game.

As for the game play itself, it is as enjoyable as ever. The rules are simple and the game only takes a couple of minutes to learn. All you have to do is outflank your opponent's pieces and then you get to flip them to your color. You can out flank them horizontally, vertically and/or diagonally so with one new piece added to the board you can change a staggering number of pieces at one time. This reversal of fortune keeps you on your toes because you have to adapt to an ever changing board. I took it with me recently to a home school event and the kids picked up to concept quickly. It was pleasant to see that the old-school classic games can still grab their attention. I even had to take a picture of the game board when we didn't have time to finish the last game, so that we can pick up where we left off next time I see them.

You may want to click around and see if this is the version of Othello you want, you can also find the same game under the name Reversi.

First the good: the game is the same as always, one of the best ever created. And unlike at least one edition, the slots actually hold 32 chips each, which makes storage better especially if you don't want to fool with keeping the box. The covers are a nice touch. But the board isn't strong enough; it actually sags just from the little pressing it gets as you flip pieces over in the middle. The raised lines between spaces seem like a good idea, but they get in the way more than they help. And the covers feel like they'll fall off any moment. Rather than buy this, I'd recommend finding a used one in good condition from the 80s. Nice, solid board, and personally I prefer the flatter chips from that period as well.

Othello is one those rare and unique games like Chess, Checkers, and Go that require nothing but strategy to win. There really is no luck involved whatsoever, and the rules are quite simple: use your pieces to surround that of your opponent's so you can flip their pieces over, revealing your color which is on the bottom side of their pieces. At the end of the game, the player who has the most pieces showing his/her color is the winner. The rules are real simple, and yet it can be such a difficult game to win.

I was introduced to this game when I was a kid and have loved it ever since. There is so much strategy involved with every move you make, and you also need to pay close attention to where your opponent is playing his/her pieces. One bad decision can turn into disaster, especially late in the game. It's not unusual to feel nervous when playing a close game, because your strategy can change so much that you may wonder if you're making the right decisions, and you might be hoping your opponent either plays or doesn't play in a certain spot. There are no dice or cards or any other luck factors involved in determining the winner. It all comes down to brains: who can play in the right spots at the right time in order to score the most points and also keep those points by the time the board is completely filled.

You can make a strong case for Chess as being the best strategy game of all time, but Othello ranks right up there beside it. The rules for Othello however are much more simple and straightforward, but like chess, it can be so difficult to win. There's an old slogan for Othello which is, "A minute to learn, a lifetime to master," and that's a very accurate description for this game.
