Reversi is a two-player board game

  • Players - 2.

  • Pieces - 64 pieces with a light and a dark face.

  • Board – board with 8 rows and 8 columns

  • Objective - The player's goal is to have a majority of their colored pieces showing at the end of the game, turning over as many of their opponent's pieces as possible.

The Game

The game begins with four markers placed in a square in the middle of the grid, two light sided facing up, two dark sided up. The dark player makes the first move.


  • A player can place a piece in a grid on the board, only if there is at least one straight line (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) without spaces between his desired position, and another piece of his color, and it must have one or more pieces from the opponent between them.

  • Once a player makes a valid move, all the opponent's pieces laid on a straight line (horizontal, vertical or diagonal), along with the new piece and between the new piece, as well as any anchoring piece from the player who moved become all reversed. From that moment on, these pieces have their color changed into this player's color

End game

The game ends when neither player can move. This occurs when the grid has filled up, or when all pieces have the same color facing up.

  • The player with the most pieces on the board at the end of the game wins.

  • If both players have the same amount of pieces, the game ends in a tie.
