Turn off the TV and get the family involved in a good old-fashioned parlor game; the rules are all here in this Howcast video series.
You Will Need
- An Othello board
- 64 reversible discs
Set up the board
Place two black and two white discs in the board's four center squares, with corresponding colors diagonal to each other.
Choose a color
Choose a color for each player. Black goes first.
Place a black disc in a square adjacent to a white disc so that a black disc is on either side of a white disc. When a white disc is surrounded, the black player flips the white disc to the black side.
Move on to the next player. The white player places a disc in a square adjacent to a black disc so that there are white discs on either side of black ones. Flip the black discs to the white side.
Take turns playing the game until all of the discs are on the board. If you cannot place a disc on the board so that your color is on either side of another player, you lose your turn.
Continue playing until every space on the board is occupied or no one can make another move. The player who has the most discs on the board wins.
