Place a cow on a square in order to sandwich your opponent's cows between the new cow and one or more of your existing cows. Valid moves are highlighted. The computer will then attempt to place a cow on the board. If either player cannot go, that player misses a turn. If no-one can go, or if the board is full, the game is over. Whoever has the most cows at the end of the game is the winner. To start a new game, select who is to go first then click on New Game.
The Use reverse board option changes the starting layout of the board slightly to enable games against some other Othello programmes, such as those marked with an (R) below.
