Episode 34: Modern Reversi

Essentially, a simplified version of Go.

Page Last Updated: April 1, 2006


This strategy game is essentially a simplified variation of the ancient game of go. The game uses a game board the same size as a checkers or chess board except traditionally the board does not have a checkers pattern. Due to laziness, however, this version uses a checkers board.

Playing the Game

The game starts out with two black chips and two white chips in alternating positions in the center of the board. On each turn players add a chip of their color to the board. The rules for adding a chip are fairly simple. The chip must be placed next to an opposite colored chip where there is a same colored chip in line horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. At this point all the opponents chips that are between the placed chip and a same colored chip horizontally, vertically or diagonally from the placed chip become that player’s color.

If the player is not able to place a chip that will capture opponent chips, they must skip their turn. The game ends when neither player is able to make a move - usually when all 64 locations have been filled but sometimes earlier. The player with the most chips of their color wins!
