Do you know this thinking game, sometimes called "Reversi" ?
I have been during several years the secretary of the
of this game (F.F.O., B.P. 383, 75626 Paris Cedex 13, France).
If you don't know it yet, I strongly suggest you to check first this web site : http://home.swipnet.se/~w-50714/othello/tutorial/intro.htm)
If you already know the game, why not playing against one of these strong (at high levels) Java applets :
A lot of programs allow computer addicts to be initiated to this game 'easy to learn, difficult to master'.
I collect them and describe all of them in the following pages (still in French language) :

My pages deal neither with the alternatives of Othello®, nor with other thinking games. I announce to the interested people some French-speaking pages which I particularly appreciated:
- About the game of Attax (same material that Othello® and Reversi, but different rules): The page of Alain BEYRAND (http://www.pressibus.org/ataxx/indexgb.html
- About the game of "Dames" (10x10 draughts): the page of Nicolas GUIBERT (http://membres.lycos.fr/nic55/dames/dames2.htm)
- About the game of Go: the page of the French Federation of Go (http://ffg.jeudego.org/intro-e.html)
My name is Bruno de la Boisserie, or more exactly Bruno Joseph François André Turquet Bravard de la Boisserie. I'm 44 years old. I live close to Evreux, in Normandy (France). I'm married for fifteen years with Isabelle.
I practise the following programming languages: Basic, Pascal and Delphi, C, Clipper. I am in addition untiring curious, always impassioned about computer science after nearly 20 years of programming...
Here some of the requests which I received in connection with
this series of pages:
- Translation to English (the volume of work is rather big, any volunteers to help me ?)
- more general Information about the game of Othello® (books, clubs, tournaments)
- Description of the programs available on-line, and in particular of the Java applets which currently pullulate.
The impatient ones may already consult the following pages, which include many links towards such programs:
I will accept obviously with great pleasure any help or collaboration.
