From the manufacturer
A Minute To Learn, A Lifetime To Master! Othello is a game where not all is Black and White. The lead can change hands from play to play and strategy is everything. The play is simple. Players are represented by either Black or White discs on the board. On each turn, players flank the discs of the opposing player between two of their own. Once captured, the double-sided discs are turned over and become the opposite colour. If you have a move, you have to take it whether you want to or not. That's all, that's the entire game. But more and more discs fall to the opposing side with each turn. Where will it all end? Starting from just four discs to begin the game, play moves all over the board with as many as 64 discs placed by the final move. Play can end when one player can't make any more moves or when the board is full.
To add to the fun, if you can make a move but you're out of discs, your opponent has to give you one of theirs. That's like arming the enemy! As you become more and more familiar with Othello, certain strategies will begin to emerge.
Owning a corner is always an advantage as that protects your discs in the immediate vicinity - your opponent can't outflank you. But is your opponent backing you towards a corner so they can try to control it themselves? That's the strategy of Othello. Can you see enough moves ahead to make your opponent put a disc somewhere they don't want to? A minute to learn...a lifetime to master!

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I felt so bad that i couldnt give my grandmother a nicer piece.
The Game is pretty interesting one can easily and effortlessly learn it how I quite doubt that many adults wouldn't even find this easy to master. The Game is challenging as well as compelling to play.
To say of the product its Good.All is as I wanted it, however a more detailed explanation about the game can be provided and how to play it, although one can learn it from Youtube easily.
Overall I really liked this product and you can go for it if you are looking for something new to try.
Funskool, this product was a good one😉
Original review: Only 59 (vs 64) coins in the box. Bought this as a gift but we decided to keep it for ourselves..fortunately because we found 5 coins missing. Would have been a bad gift if found by the recipient.
Hard to believe such missing coins.
Also the coins are not well made too.
Appropriate for ages 10 and up. (or if your kid is very intelligent, then 8 and up). Adults can also enjoy this game.
Replacement received in the perfect condition, its a nice and addictive Game. Updating my rating.
Disappointed, as 4 discs are missing. I have placed a replacement request and hopefully will get the correct product. ..........
