Othello Classic


Practice makes perfect

Othello is the game that takes a minute to learn, but a lifetime to master!

Trap your opponents discs...

... to flip them to your own colour.

Black places their disc at “X”, trapping the white discs between the black end pieces. These discs are 'captured' and flipped over to become black.

Anchor points

White places their piece at “X” and has two “anchor” points and can capture both the vertical and diagonal lines.

How to play Othello

Othello is a strategy board game for two players (Black and White), played on an 8 by 8 board. The game traditionally begins with four discs placed in the middle of the board as shown below. Black moves first.

Othello game rules

Black must place a black disc on the board, in such a way that there is at least one straight (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) occupied line between the new disc and another black disc, with one or more contiguous white pieces between them. In the starting position, Black has the following 4 options indicated by translucent discs:

After placing the disc, Black flips all white discs lying on a straight line between the new disc and any existing black discs. All flipped discs are now black. If Black decides to place a disc in the topmost location, one white disc gets flipped, and the board now looks like this:

Players alternate taking turns. If a player does not have any valid moves, play passes back to the other player. When neither player can move, the game ends. A game of Othello may end before the board is completely filled.

The player with the most discs on the board at the end of the game wins. If both players have the same number of discs, then the game is a draw.
