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 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!

            This game is everything I remember. Just smaller on size, but it is great and makes you think. Nothing like a boars game.

                    I enjoy the game and played it often as a child. My only disappointment is the quality of the board. My old board was more sturdy with slide covers over the chip storage area. This version has covers that remove completely....can be easily misplaced.

                      Played this with my 12 year old and lost. Badly. lol It's fun and strategic and lasts longer than you expect.

                      We had never played this game before we bought it, or even heard of it, but I was surprised at how much the kids (10, 12, & 14) enjoy playing it. The instructions are easy to comprehend and explain.

                      I wish it could be played with more than 2 people but it is fun nonetheless. :) It also may cause you to want to eat Oreos (because the pieces resemble them).

                          Good strategy game for my son. Has to think ahead for moves but the concept is easy enough or little sister to join in.
