Outflank your opponent and win all the pegs you can Kids can just enjoy the game and learning basic strategy, while adults can spend a good deal of time on each move, contemplating the best possible place to put their peg. Othello is a timeless game for all ages, requiring skill, forethought, and just the right amount of good fortune
The object of Othello is to outflank your opponent, ending up with the majority of pegs on the board in your color. Each time you move, simply place a peg on the wood playing board in such a way that you have a peg on either end of an opponent's row. Then, all the outflanked pegs become yours - they are flipped over to show your color. Of course, there are lots of ways to prevent this, and everyone has a different idea on how to play. So remember, each new opponent means a new strategy, and a whole new challenge
Finally, you'll find that there's a dot on the green end of the game pegs, and the other ends are smooth, so blind players can tell by touch whose pegs are whose. And our Othello set even comes complete with a wooden storage box to keep everything self-contained. Measures about 6 in. by 5-1/2 in. by 1-1/4 in. Weighs: 8.6 oz.
