Othello Classic – A Minute to Learn…… A Lifetime to Master!

Othello is the internationally acclaimed two player strategy game, that you can learn to play in a minute, but will take you a life time to master.

We love Othello and have played it as a family for years, its a game that you trap and capture you opponents chips by sandwiching them with yours and having the most turned to your colour by the end of the game – thats it, well almost!

How Do You Play?

To start the game both players place two chips diagonally in the centre of the board. Then flip a chip to see who is going first.

The player must sandwich at least one of the opponents chips each move, if you can’t then you miss a go.

You have to place your chips carefully each turn trapping your opponent, but be careful how you go as you just might end up having all your chips turned over on the next move by your opponent.

My advice is to check where you want to go, check again and then think “okay, if I go here, where does that put my opponent?”

Sometimes you just have no choice but to take a hit, but work on the next move in your head to see if you can rescue your position in the game.

Some games are over in a flash, other can take alot longer. But they are all fun!

Othello can be purchased from Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, WH Smith, ToyMaster or any good toy stockist for around £16. The game is aimed at aged 7+,

    This really is great for younger ones to play to get their brains working on planning ahead, and easier to learn than chess which does a similar thing!
