CyranoCyranoCyrano sounds like a strange name for an Othello Reversi online game ; it was developed by Bruno Causse, a french developer who seems to have spent a lot of time to build this little but really powerful game, available on his website.

Othello is a well known 2 players 8 by 8 squares board game using 64 discs. Each disc is white on one side and black on the other. Each player chooses one color, and the goal is to have a majority of the pieces showing your color by the end of the game.

Both players take turns placing a single piece of his or her color on the board. Once a piece is played, it never moves, but it can be flipped. Specifically, each time you place a piece, you also flip some of your opponent’s pieces — those that are horizontally, vertically, or diagonally between the piece you just put down and another piece of your own color. You are required to flip at least one of your opponent’s pieces each time you make a move, otherwise you have to pass your turn. The game ends when neither player can make a legal move.

Cyrano offers different levels of difficulty, from beginner to master. It also allow you to play in Blitz mode, with 3 choices : 1, 3 and 5 minutes. Note that you’ll be able to finish the game even if your remaining time goes below 0.

Beware, Cyrano is strong, very strong, and even at the beginner level, you’ll need some practice if not days before being able to win !

With a clean interface and the legal moves option activated, Cyrano is a serious opponent for Othello games and a perfect choice in the jungle of Othello online games. Just have a look here and have fun!
