Reversi is a strategy board game for two players, played on an 8×8 uncheckered board. It was invented in 1883. Othello, a variant with a change to the board's initial setup, was patented in 1971.

There are sixty-four identical game pieces called disks (often spelled discs), which are light on one side and dark on the other. Players take turns placing disks on the board with their assigned color facing up. During a play, any disks of the opponent's color that are in a straight line and bounded by the disk just placed and another disk of the current player's color are turned over to the current player's color. The object of the game is to have the majority of disks turned to display your color when the last playable empty square is filled.

Reversi Free / Othello Board Strategies : Google Play Games

Reversi - officially known as Othello, but also known as GO, is a board based game of two color chips used to capture and dominate another player. Easy to learn, more fun than Checkers and at times requires a strategy of Chess, or just really good luck and an opponent making really bad moves. Sky Thusters walks you through the basic game play explaining how the game works using level five as an example, and ending the video showing a game played at level ten. Available as #Othello in your local toy or board game store, or as #Reversi or GO on Android, IOS apps. You can also get it for Lynx, Windows or Apple's Mac computers.

Once you start playing it and get the basics down, you'll find it a great way to pass time during doctors appointments, waiting at the bus stop, laying in bed, or anywhere else.

Othello: Strategy, Tips & Tricks (+ Chatting)

This is a little different from my usual content, but as I cannot log into my Animal Jam accounts for the time being, I figured it might be fun to try something new.

Othello (sometimes called Reversi) is a 2-person strategy game. I go over some tips & tricks I've picked up from playing the game for a while, and discuss potential directions I could go with this channel. I do not intend to leave Animal Jam behind, but rather expand into other territory.

I'm hoping to post Among Us videos in the future, but we'll see if that happens (fingers crossed!)

If you read the description, you are special.
No insider information this time, but Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays (Happy Jamaalidays), and Happy New Year!

ISAAC - An abstract strategy game by Wentu

Isaac is a new original abstract strategy game for two players created by Emiliano Wentu Venturini in 2010.

You can play Isaac at

If you have Windows8, you can also play it at:

You can find all the material regarding Isaac at:

If you are in any way interested in Isaac (publishing it, implementing it, discussing it or whatever) please contact me on Isaac's FB page:

The game is divided in two different phases, placement and scoring.
During the placement, a player places one of his rectangular pieces on the available spaces of a 10x10 square grid board.
During the scoring, each player removes one of his pieces from the board, scoring a number of points equal to the number written on the removed piece times the number of pieces that lie on the row/column from which the piece was removed. A piece can be removed only if it is at least long as the longest piece already removed by the same player.
Each player uses his/her own counter to keep track of his/her points but the counter itself is placed on the board (that is, the board is also the score track). The presence of a counter on the row/column from which a piece is taken doubles the points scored. A player can decide to score less points than he/she earned, therefore allowing to place the score counter in a more convenient place.

Isaac has been published by NestorGames.
Please notice that there has been some little but significant changes from the prototype i showed here.
Coordinates on the board now go from 0 to 9 instead of 1 to 10. At the beginning of the second phase you immediately put your counter on the? leftmost square of the row in front of you to mark your score of 0 points. This means counters are immediately available for doublings along the perimetral lines.

10 Things You Didn't Know Your Nintendo Switch Could Do

Are you getting the most out of your Switch? 10 Things You Didn't Know Your Nintendo Switch Could Do! Subscribe now to TheGamer!

Welcome back to the Gamer! Today we are discussing the features unique to the Switch. We all know Nintendo has huge reputation for their extraordinary attention to detail and that’s what we are going to talk about today.
First Minecraft Story Mode is coming! This will be a great breath of fresh air for all of those who have been patiently waiting. The game will be out later in August 2017. Next, we discuss the frame rate lagging issue that occurs when Nintendo switches are not put in airplane or manual mode. This trick is a must!
From there we talk about the impressive catalog of games. If that wasn’t enough, don’t fret, users can play any Eshop game from around the world, regardless of their physical location. With that, another hidden feature that you may not know is that online multiplayer is free! Not for long, though, ends Fall 2017. Whenever that is. Next we talk about the Switch’s processor. Notably it’s an ARM and how this impacts some of the Switch’s best features.
Have you purchased the Pro Controller? We love it- there’s a hidden feature as well. We’re we the first to tell you? How about the hidden facebook hack? Yep, that one exists, and frankly, is to be expected. We’re not sure why, but the Switch is also keyboard compatible. Must be docked, though, as that’s where you’ll find the USB’s. This one’s for the more experienced gamer, but we talk about controller calibration. Not just for nerds, the calibration tool is great for certain people.
Lastly, we talk about a pair of hacked Joy-Con’s. We wonder what role they play in Nintendo’s future.
