Othello rules

Othello (Reversi) is a chess-and-checkers-related game for two members, where participants are given an 8 by 8 square board. One participant leads with white chips and the other one with black chips.

The goal of each player is to make such a lead in order to be able to block a number of chips of the second participant on both sides: vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. If you manage to do this, the opponent’s chips go to the participant who led.

Gameplay

  • four chips (two black and two white ones) are placed diagonally opposite each other in the center of the field at the starting position;
  • during the game, both players are highlighted with possible leads;
  • each participant receives 30 seconds per a lead. If the player does not make a lead, the game the game automatically switches to the opponent.

Final

The game is considered to be completed in two cases: either when all the chips are put on the field, or when none of the participants has valid leads.

After the game, the winner is determined by the number of chips on the field: the participant who has the most chips wins. If both participants have an equal number of chips, then the draw is counted.
