    Concept »

    Also known as Othello, this strategic board game uses round pieces with a different color on either side. When pieces of one color form a straight line between two pieces of the other color, the middle pieces are flipped over.

    Short summary describing this concept.

    The game was inspired by the Chinese/Japanese board game Go. Since the name Othello is a trademark of Pressman Games, other companies use the title Reversi, which has become the widely-accepted generic name for the game. However, in 2006, a European trademark for toys and games called Reversi was registered by the German board game company Ravensburger. Several Reversi-based video games' titles have been changed at the company's request.
