How to Play Othello or Reversi

Othello, also known as Reversi, is played with two players, each representing a color on the board. The rules are simple, but strategy is what will help you win.

Step 1: Set up the board
Place two black and two white discs in the board’s four center squares, with corresponding colors diagonal to each other.

Step 2: Choose a color
Choose a color for each player. Black goes first.

Step 3: Begin play
Place a black disc in a square adjacent to a white disc so that a black disc is on either side of a white disc. When a white disc is surrounded, the black player flips the white disc to the black side.

Step 4: Next player
Move on to the next player. The white player places a disc in a square adjacent to a black disc so that there are white discs on either side of black ones. Flip the black discs to the white side.

Tip
A player can flip any number of opposing discs so long as they have one of their discs on either side of consecutive opposing discs.

Step 5: Take turns
Take turns playing the game until all of the discs are on the board. If you cannot place a disc on the board so that your color is on either side of another player, you lose your turn.

Tip
The corners are the most powerful spaces on the board. Try to get one of your own colored discs in each of the corners.

Step 6: Continue play
Continue playing until every space on the board is occupied or no one can make another move. The player who has the most discs on the board wins.

Did You Know?
Othello was created in 1971 by a Japanese salesman named Goro Hasegawa.

  • I play a game called Hexversi at a site called itsyourturn Hexversi has the same rules as Othello but the board is shaped like a hexagon and a full board has 90 pieces. I'm always looking for new players as Hexversi is not well known. If anyone is interested in playing me a game let me know. The game won't be live. You just move when it is your turn. Usually a move or 2 a day. Hope to see you soon:)

  • By learning how to hit correctly (the theory is easy for anyone to understand), and by making full use of it, anyone can become a world champion of Othello or a strong famous player on the Othello website. In 2018, 11-year-old elementary school students won the Othello World Championship by defeating adults one after another, becoming the youngest world champion in history. 😎

  • I learned how to play from Assassins Creed III after playing 9 men’s Morris and thought that the rules were almost the same and got into that genre of strategy games, got really good at it that I beat platinum, bought an Othello board and played with friends, I’ve never heard that Reversi was another name for Othello (thought it was a different game similar to Othello), and I live in the U.S.
