Board game review: Othello

othello, board game, john adams, ideal games

Othello,  what can I say? What a fantastic game this is!

Both me and my other half love this game so much! It is so addictive! I wish I had more time to play it with him, maybe once we get ourselves sorted, we will be able to play it more! I am not sure whether Miss A is ready to play this game, maybe I will need to try!

Info from the website:

Othello takes a minute to learn and lifetime to master! It’s the internationally acclaimed two player strategy game.

Trap and capture your opponent by placing your disks on the board.  “Sandwich” at least one of your opponent’s pieces to turn their disk to your colour….but look out, your opponent will do the same to you.  The lead can change with the flip of a disk in this classic fast-paced strategy game.

I failed to win at this game every time I played it. My other half has such a good brain on him, he is a web programmer! But that doesn’t put me off! As you can see, I did very well at losing.

I can see this being a regular game and is coming with us when we go away. If only we had a travel one! We are going away to stay on a canal boat at some point this year so this will be coming with us then. I think to spend time on a peaceful canal boat playing Othello would be amazing! We will be having family with us as well so it would be great to take it in turns!
