Othello is a digital conversion of the classic board game of the same name (also known as Reversi).

The game is played with two players who in their turn place a marker on the 8x8 grid. a marker must border to at least one enemy marker. When a player encloses enemy markers between two of his own the enclosed markers change colour. When there's no possible move for a player he has to skip a turn. The game ends when the entire board is full. The player with the most markers on the board wins.

This version of the game allows you to play against another player, or the CD-i. Included are two AIs who represent Einstein and Leonardo da Vinci. The game is shown from a first person perspective so you can see your opponent. [source:mobygames]
