It was first invented as Reversi by two Englishmen in the late 19th century but got reincarnated as Othello in 1971 by the Japanese. Yes, one of the most famous board games in the world is actually Japanese, so it's only fitting that its most recent reinterpretation would be again from Japan - and themed after the most popular manga and anime franchise of recent years. We're talking, of course, about Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Othello, which has all your favorite good guys and girls from the series.
The pieces in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Othello feature the four protagonists (Tanjiro and Kamado and their friends Zenitsu and Inosuke) as well as the nine elite swordsmen of the Dragon Slayer Corps (aka Hashira). Four pieces also come with the Japanese kanji logographic characters for "Demon" and "Slayer," and you can put them in the center every time you start a new game. Pick your favorite characters, lay down the board featuring a great illustration from the manga, and play!
