Description

Reversi is a computerized version of the board game Othello. During the game, two players take turns placing game pieces on the board in an attempt to trap pieces of their opponents color. Any trapped pieces will then be reversed in color. When the board becomes completely filled up, whomever has the most pieces of his own color on the board wins. The game can be played by two players, or one player against the computer. There are three skill levels the computer can use, and three different board sizes are available, 6 by 6, 8 by 8, and 10 by 10.

Trivia

Mattel owned general rights to the Othello board game brand, but were forced to release their video game conversion under the name "Reversi" because the electronic rights to "Othello" had been sold to Atari for their 1980 2600 (and later 1988 NES) conversions of the board game.
