Othello, An internationally acclaimed strategy game, Othello takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master. Simple enough for children, yet challenging for adults, it’s great, fast-moving fun for the entire family. Choose to be black or white and strive to get the most discs flipped with your color face-up at the end of the game. White can turn to black and black can turn to white again and again in this constantly changing game. Includes: 64 reversible discs, one playing board, six playing board “feet” and instructions. For 2 players. Board measures 14.25″L x 10.19″W x 1.25″H.
An oldie but a goodie! I always loved Othello and have a version from the 80’s. I was psyched when my 11 year old niece asked for it for her birthday. It was hard to find it at the toy store but easy on Amazon. The Othello board now has little indented box areas to put your discs so they can’t slide onto another box. This is a nice addition. What I didn’t like was they took away the little clear covers that covered your discs when you wanted to put the game away, now the discs could fal all over inside the box. Othello is still a great game and this version is good.
I remember playing this game when I was a kid. Even though I always wanted to own it I never got around to buying it until recently. Recently this game poped into my mind, and I knew that I had to try to find it, since I remember it being a ton of fun when I was a child. In the 21st century there is a lot of electronic games and party games available to buy. The classic’s seem to be hard to find now days so when I find one of the classic games that I remember playing as a kid I usually buy it. I remember doing some christmas shopping this past holiday season and I remember seeing othello in the store. When I went back to the same store looking for othello it was no longer there. I put it out of my mind until recently when I was thinking about all of the fun classic games I remembered growing up. When you look at this game you don’t think that it would be fun, however it is very fun and also can be very challenging. As many others have said this is one of those games that is easy to learn but hard to master. One of the great things about this game is that it is never the same game twice. This is one of my favorite games along with Monopoly/Yahtzee, and I’m so happy to finally add it to my collection of classic games.
