Reversi or Othello Game 2.20080124 description

This web page is a Java applet to play the board game of Reversi, also known as Othello. ("Othello" is a registered trademark. Since 1976 in the United States, the legal owner is Tsukuda Co. Ltd. of Japan, assigned to Anjar Co. in New York. Mattel Inc. once held a trademark for "Reversi" as a video game but that expired in 1989. There is no current trademark in the United States for "Reversi" as a board game.)

The playing board is a rectangular grid. Your positions are shown as black circles. Positions occupied by the computer are shown in white. You move first.

A legal move is any empty position that traps one or more of the computers positions in a straight line (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) between the empty position and another of your positions. The trapped positions are then "flipped" (reversed) and become your positions. To help you, legal moves are highlighted when you hold the mouse over an empty position. If you cant move, then you lose your turn and the computer moves next. The game ends when nobody can move. The player with the most occupied positions is the winner.

You may change the size of the game board. The number of rows and columns may be changed independently. The standard size is 8x8. You may also select "easy" or "medium" difficulty. On "easy" play, the computer moves randomly. On "medium" play, the computer flips the maximum number of positions.

A more difficult level has not been implemented. This would require hundreds or thousands of lines of additional code to develop a better strategy. The extra code would detract from this games primary purpose, which is to demonstrate graphical Java programming. Should you feel like doing the work, the program does contain hooks for two additional levels called "hard" and "expert".
