Well, I never really knew how to play reversi, but I figured it out today with the help of Maddy (<3 her) the ultimate goal, is to get all four corners blocked with your colored piece, but, lets say both players have their piece on a corner, then the player with the most pieces on the board...WINS.
The most exciting game was Teddy and Mari, the reason why it was exciting was, Mari has NO idea what she was doing, and Teddy is practically an expert. But in the end, Mari BEAT Teddy.... O.o
I wonder if Teddy did that on purpose......
"The original rules of Reversi stipulated that the first two moves by each player, beginning on an empty board, were to place on one of the 4 central squares that remained unoccupied (so that there is no choice for the 2nd player's 2nd move) a disk of one's color, so that an essentially alternate starting position from the modern game could be forced by either player. Othello's rules, however, state that the game begins with four disks placed in a square in the middle of the grid, two facing light-up, two pieces with the dark side up, with same-colored disks on a diagonal with each other, and this is nearly universal practise in reversi play today. Convention has initial board position such that the disks with dark side up are lined up top right and bottom left, though this is only marginally meaningful to play (Where opening memorization is an issue, some players may benefit from consistency on this). The dark player makes the first move."
To be honest, I have NO clue what ANY of that means, but, if you're some genius with words, fire away!!!!
