The World’s Most Elegant Board Game: Othello
Othello - a board game beloved the world over
The board game "Reversi" is often known in Japan, and many other places, as "Othello". Originating in the United Kingdom in the 19th century, it has come to be loved in many countries all over the world.
Its attraction lies in the fact that while it's rules are simple and easy to remember, it allows for a remarkable depth of play. Because of this, both children and adults can fall victim to its charms. There are almost certainly many enjoying a game at this very moment.
Not just a game, but also a thing of beauty
"TWOTONE" is a redesign of reversi.
Currently most reversi sets sold around the world have a green board with a grid pattern, and black and white pieces. However TWOTONE decided to eschew tradition, and create a new version using different colours and materials.
Firstly, the board is made of high-grade transparent acrylic, making it look like clean cut ice. The pieces are also acrylic, and available in blue, pink, white, clear, black, and dark grey; a completely different set of colour schemes. Finally, all components are made in Japan by trained specialists who give them a high end finish.
As a result, TWOTONE is something you can enjoy as a decoration, even when not enjoying it as a game. It truly is the most beautiful riversi set you are likely to find.
