The Othello wiki last edited by Mento on 10/10/15 02:52PM View full history


The NES Othello began as a HAL-developed Famicom Disk System game, published by educational toy makers Kawada Co. Ltd. It received a Famicom release around the same time. A couple of years later, Acclaim would publish it for the American NES market.


Othello is a classic variant of Checkers and is also known as Reversi. Each player tries to fill the game board with as many discs of their color as possible. On each turn the player places a disc on the board by selecting a location where the opponents discs will become trapped between two of their discs. The trapped discs are flipped over to the player's color. The game ends when the board is filled or time runs out, and the player with the greatest number of their color discs on the board wins. Two players can play against each other, or one player against the computer.
