NAME

       gpe-othello - Stategic one-player board game for GPE.

DESCRIPTION

       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.
