How to win at Othello almost every time!



This video gives you strategy tips for how to consistently win at Othello. I walk through myself playing a game and give you information on what I am thinking at every point. If you want me to analyze another specific board game, let me know. In addition check out my other videos on game theory.

***Note: I found that these strategies work well against casual players. For more advanced players some of the comments on edge play do not work in competitive matches. If you want to play competitively I recommend you google the book “Brian Rose Othello A min to learn, a lifetime to master”. Credit to youtube user vecspace for making this suggestion.

    " It's good to have the walls"
    me – "That's like, 70% of the board….. so no shit"

  • I play a game called Hexversi at a free site called itsyourturn Hexversi has the same rules as Othello but the board is shaped like a hexagon and a full board has 90 pieces. The different angles make the game really fun and interesting. I'm always looking for new players as Hexversi is not well known. If anyone is interested in playing me a game, let me know. The game won't be live. You just move when it is your turn. Usually a move or 2 a day. Search for Holden2341 to invite me to a game. It's a lot of fun. Hope to see you soon:)

  • I think the fundamentals covered in this video may not be reflective of how truly complex the game actually is 🙂 But given I understand how hard it is to make Othello videos, it is still a good effort! Only the title seems a little bit overselling the video perhaps

  • Its a racist game. Black denotes inferiority. You want white to win.

  • Holy shit you are, without exaggeration, fucking terrible at this game. Consider for a minute, how are you going to take a corner if you occupy the 3 squares directly adjacent to it? 3:35 Soooooooooo BAAAAAAAD.

  • You have no clue how to play Othello. Nothing but the corners count for anything. get 3 corners and you will almost always win. DON"T try to turn over many of your opponents pieces until you have a corner. Never place a piece within 2 squares of the corner. Your trying to force your opponent to give you a corner. Once you have a corner keep working away from corners while forcing your opponent to set you up. If your working away from your corners, your giving no moves to your opponent, forcing him to make more and more bad move as he MUST move if able. if You have followed my guide thus far your opponent will give you 2 and possibly 3 more corners. Keep your opponent under control. let him/her setup your win. Lastly avoid placing pieces on outside until you have no choice.

  • Your strategy is dreadful. Good job the computer was playing like a moron. You didn't capture any of the key positions on the board, most of your positions were bad & would have lost you the game against any moderately decent player. Please Do Not Make Anymore Strategy Videos! You need to go learn decent Othello strategy.

  • Keith, if you played like that against the version DroidZebra you would never get past level one.
