There are sixty-four identical game pieces called disks (often spelled “discs”), which are light on one side and dark on the other.
Players take turns placing disks on the board with their assigned color facing up. During a play, any disks of the opponent’s color that are in a straight line and bounded by the disk just placed and another disk of the current player’s color are turned over to the current player’s color.
The objective of the game is to have the majority of disks turned to display one’s color when the last playable empty square is filled.

In single-player mode you make your way through Tournament Mode, competing against eight increasingly more difficult opponents. You can take an’Ability Level Test’ which is designed to grade you based on your standard of play. If you are just starting out you can try the ‘Reversi Lesson’ which provides ten short sessions to teach you the basics of the game.
There’s a ‘Free Play’ mode where you can see all the moves that are available. And then there is a two-player mode which is accessible via the link cable.
