Othello is a 2 player logic board game featuring an 8 × 8 square board with 64 2-sided pieces pieces. The objective of the game is to have the most pieces on your color when all pieces are in play.


Both players take turns placing pieces on their color (White or black), and flipping their opponent's pieces. You flip your opponents pieces that are directly between the piece you just placed, and one of your previously placed pieces, without any gaps or any other of your pieces in the way. When placing a piece, it must flip at least 1 of your opponent's pieces.


The game starts with 2 of each player's pieces in play in a checkerboard pattern, taking up the 4 central squares of the game board.
