Othello is based on the board game where each player attempts to have more counters on the board than their opponent on a 8 x 8 grid. The game starts with both players having two counters in the center of the board diagonal from each other. To take another piece, the player places a counter to have a number of their opponents counters between two of the players counters, vertical, horizontal or diagonal. The opponents colour is then turned into the players colour and it is then the opponents turn. This carries on until the board is full or no counters can be placed. A player can either play against the computer (skill levels 1-9) or another player and there is also the option to change starting positions.
