gpe-othello - Stategic one-player board game for GPE.
This manual page documents briefly the gpe-othello game.
Othello is also known as Reversi. gpe-othello is a strategic boardgame
for the GPE Palmtop Environment which involves play against a handheld
computer on an eight-by-eight square grid with pieces that have light
and dark faces.
The player places light-faced pieces so that there is at least one
straight (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) line between the new piece
and another light piece, with one or more contiguous dark pieces
between them. Pieces captured in this manner are turned over and can be
used in later moves. The winner has the most number of pieces showing
the appropriate face when the grid is full or when the other player has
no pieces of their own colour left.
