Product Description

Othello Refresh - is the game that takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master! The lead can change hands from play to play and strategy is everything. Play is simple. Players are represented by either black or white discs on the board. On each turn, players flank the discs of the opposing player between two of their own. Once captured, the double-sided discs are flipped over and become the opposite color. If you have a move, you have to take it. Play ends when one player can't make any more moves or the game board is full. The player with the most pieces of their color facing up wins! The more you play, the more certain strategies emerge, and the more likely you are to lead your opponent right where you want them. To celebrate its 35th Anniversary, Othello features streamlined packaging, a more modern game board and storage for the pieces.

This game includes:

  • 64 Reversible discs
  • Game board
  • 2 Disc holders
  • Instruction booklet

The board is cheaply made. It no longer has a felt top, but does have grooves to keep the pieces in place. The chip holders used to have flip tops to keep the chips in, but the new version has covers that pop off and on which don't really work well at all. Really loved this game growing up so wouldn't exactly recommend not purchasing because my niece loved it, but wish it was higher quality. I still have my game from the 80's, but don't think the new version will last over 30 years.

Comments about Mattel 1001134 Othello Refresh:

I purchased this game for my seven year old grandson. It was a family game that I had as a child and was thrilled to see it on the shelf at Toys"R"Us. The thinking skills this game develops are wonderful and will have life-long benefits for him. I also like that is a 2 person game for a little extra one-on-one time with grandma.

    Comments about Mattel 1001134 Othello Refresh:

    Toys r us had the best price on this game all over the Internet. And it shipped quickly too. Got it in 2 days. I love Othello and I love this game! The quality of board games in the past several years has severely tanked! The box is so thin you swear you're suppose to throw it away. The board is nice plastic, and I I like the shape, makes it easy to play on a bed. It is thin tho and lightweight. The deer don't stay in the base. The peices are good quality. I would recommend this game! But if never pay more than $20 for it

    Comments about Mattel 1001134 Othello Refresh:

    Loved sharing one of my favorite games from childhood with my kids. They like it so much, they have been playing it with their friends! My only complaint would be that the board isn't quite as sturdy as the original, which is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. I would definitely recommend this game!

        I discovered this game at school one of my students brought it on game board day! I had never heard of it before so I sat down and watched a few students play. They quickly taught me how to play and I thought it would be a great game to get to play with my husband. After introducing it to him he has wanted to play it for hours! It really makes you think and use your brain I don't recommend playing it when your tired, make sure your brain is in full function!!

        I had first played this game at a friends house and was instantly hooked. Buying this game for both myself and for my cousin for his birthday, we're constantly playing it whenever we're together. Such a quick and easy game to learn, and everyone who plays it loves it. Definitely 5 stars!
