Average Game Time: 30 Minutes
Reversi is a strategy board game for two players, played on an 8×8 board. There are sixty-four identical game pieces called discs, which are light on one side and dark on the other. Players take turns placing discs on the board with their assigned colour facing up. During a play, any disks of the opponent’s colour that are in a straight line and bounded by the disc just placed and another disc of the current player’s colour are turned over to the current player’s colour. The object of the game is to have the majority of discs turned to display your colour when the last playable empty square is filled.
The game Reversi was invented in 1883 by either of two English men (each claiming the other a fraud), Lewis Waterman or John W. Mollett (or perhaps earlier by someone else entirely), and gained considerable popularity in England at the end of the nineteenth century.
