The article division of Reversi and Othello or changing name to Reversi ⇒ Othello/Reversi(board game)Edit

I want to do the article division of Reversi and Othello or changing name to Reversi ⇒ Othello/Reversi(board game), how about? The relations of Othello should transcribe that which how about, the article of Othello(board game) into Reversi by an article of Othello(board game). Specifically, it was said with "I transfer it to deletion, an article of Reversi immediately without permission" the other day even if I made Othello(board game) newly and was going to transcribe "World Othello Championship" in an article. It is strange to list "World Othello Championship" of Othello in an article of Reversi. (okayaminおかやみん (talk) 15:24, 2 December 2015 (UTC))

Personality and Reversi, in popular TV showEdit

So, in Criminal Minds, a very early S1 episode indicated that Go!/Reversi had a personality test associated with it. I do not know whether or not this statement has any research backing, but if one has been developed, it may be worth mention as well as whether or not it has any research backing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:50, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

Reversi rulesEdit

What's the source for saying that in Reversi each player only has 32 pieces? The standard work to hand, RC Bell's Board and Table Games From Many Civilizations (2nd ed, 1969), predates the 'invention' of Othello and just says that there are 64 pieces, black on one side and white on the other. There's no indication that a player 'owns' 32 of them. (In relation to an earlier query, it's also clear that a capture involves all such rows, not just one.)

When Othello was released, comment in places like Games & Puzzles magazine and David Levy's books only referred to its opening restriction, not any other changes. Lovingboth (talk) 19:27, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Ravensburger, who are publishing Reversi since 1893, say in their Ruleset: "Jeder Spieler erhält zu beginn 32 Spielsteine." Since Ravensburger owns the trademark Reversi you may trust this source. (talk) 03:42, 20 May 2018 (UTC)


In 1984 the MacIntosh computers came with a version of Reversi called Iago - a reference to the trademarked version of the game, Othello.

It's mentioned here:

Might be worth mentioning. Ileanadu (talk) 01:30, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

Paten t?Edit

Notice about microsoft ReversiEdit

Has anyone bothered to notice that in the game of Reversi (microsoft build in gamepack), there is no United States nationality in any of the meriat overseas microsoft packages?

There is spanish, english, danish, hungarian, japan, arab, but no ´united states´.

I suppose a United States Citizen can anonimously become any, which I suppose is a fine hack, if you where a United States Citizen. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:02, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
