Product Description

Entrapment, jealousy, two-facedness - no, it's not the plot of a new soap opera, it's a beautifully rendered wooden version of this exciting strategy game which takes its name from the themes in Shakespeare's acclaimed tragedy. Win the game by capturing your opponent's pegs, and flipping them to your color. Originally invented as "Reversi" by two Englishmen who each accused the other of stealing the idea, even Othello's inception was touched with the themes present in the strategy of the game itself. It remains popular - although not as controversial - today, especially in Japan where the modern rule set was developed. The Japanese continue to dominate the World Othello Championships, so if you plan on competing you'll have a lot of practice to do. Remember, Othello is easy to learn... easy to play...Not so easy to win...so start now! This set comes complete with a board, a lid and the game pieces.

When I ordered Othello I decided between this one and the plastic mass-market version. This one seemed smaller, but I read in the reviews about the plastic set that the board wore badly and sometimes broke.

This version sounded small, and I had reservations. But I ordered it. And it is small! But kind of pleasantly so. It's not good if you don't have good dexterity because the pieces are very close together, but the entire set is well made and makes for a nice experience.

My only caveat: I wish it came with a few extra pieces - it has exactly the right number, but if you lose one then you'll have to have a replacement.

This toy is a real disappointment. It's well-made and attractive, but the box and pegs are so tiny that neither I, an adult, nor my 8 year old grandson can move a peg without upsetting those nearby. The pegs are very small, so can be very easily lost, and the set comes with no replacements. I'm sorry I bouught this.

I loved Othello as a child and I love it as an adult. This is a great strategy game for children that is easy to learn and provides much enjoyment. Its almost addictive. Although our original Othello game is still around and in good shape, I like this one made of wood. I wish it was a bit bigger, but it still is a wonderful game. It is a game that can be passed down to future generations.

I ordered two Orthello games, and one arrived broken. We were able to fix the game ourselves with just a little glue, but did appreciate the company's willingness to replace the game.
