Reversi is a board game that sits between checkers and chess in terms of
complexity. It’s played on an 8 by 8 board with discs that are black on
one side and white on the other. Moves are made into any unoccupied square, but
each move must capture at least one of the opponent’s pieces.
When a disc is placed, any continuous run of your opponent’s pieces
between that disc and another of your discs will be captured. Captures can be
made horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Captured pieces flip over,
changing from your opponent’s colour to your colour. The winner is the
player with the most pieces at the end of the game.
This version of Reversi is rendered in full 3D, and allows you to play against
either the computer or a friend. Features include:
Five difficulty levels for the computer opponent, from novice to expert.
Unlimited undo of your moves.
Highlighting of legal moves.
Highlighting of the last piece placed.
Automatic saving of the current game when you quit.
A legacy version of Reversi is still available for download. If your Mac is
running a version of macOS older than 10.12, or if your Mac is having problems
with its Metal drivers, then this version will work for you:
