Reversi/Othello at a tournament in England?
  • alain at 2007-06-17

    Just letting you know that the Mind Sports Olympiad ( is an annual, high quality, games tournament which this year (Aug 18th to Aug 27th) will be featuring Othello.

    Its the highlight of my year, and I hope some people from LG will support the event.

    Its a long way to go if you’re not from England, though. How many would travel to another country to play? Take time off work?

    Hope to see you there!

    Many Othello players in Europe travel to other countries to play tournaments. However, the MSO is not a very popular event among Othello players. Players who aren’t from England would much rather participate in the Cambridge International Open (an annual event in February).

    The preference for the tournament in Cambridge is noted. The MSO is a wonderful concept, though the organisation in the past has not been very good. Hopefully things will improve with time and Othello players will return. Its certainly rare to have a good level tournament where you can play so many different games against good players in a concentrated time.
