There are countless variations of Othello, the simple but exiting board game with the round stones that are turned when captured and most come from Japan: the game was invented here, so the Japanese come up with all kinds of new ideas about it. The Four-Player Othello stands out because it really is a, well, game changer: undermining the basic principle that Othello (and its parent, Reversi) is a two-player game, it allows up to four players to play simultaneously, making things much more difficult - which in the world of board games means much more fun!
How does the Four-Player Othello do it? The updated design is very simple but someone had to think it: instead of flat discs/stones, the pieces here are cubes, so they can accommodate the four players and their respective colors. Of course, there's black and white but you also get red and blue (each color also comes in a different shape, so it's even easier to spot who's got what). Complete with a 270 x 270 x 20 mm (10.6 x 10.6 x 0.1") green board and a bag for the pieces, this version of Othello will become the highlight of any board game get-together!
