       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.
