    The idea of porting boardgames (for a reasonable price) to the Switch is actually a really good one. Othello on Switch is simultaneously cheaper and more portable than its physical counterpart.

    Supporting both touch screen and single-joycon play makes this game more than worth the 5 dollar price tag. But it would be cool to see some more creative muscles like the upcoming monopoly game

    It's Othello, a board game and it can provide a little competitive multiplayer for you and your friends. It's certainly cheap, but I seriously doubt it's something you thought you'd want to buy a Switch for.

    Othello is a classic board game that holds up well after all these years. However, this version is so bare-bones that you may as well pick up an 8-bit iteration as it'll probably be more fully-featured.

    As it stands, it’s an OK representation of Othello in video game form, but it doesn’t really do anything else than give you basic video game Othello. It’s a little bland and by the numbers in that regard, which is disappointing considering it has been forever since I’ve played Othello in any format. Still, if you’ve got five bucks to spend, and you’re looking for something to play on the Switch, it’s not a bad way to go. You can pick up and play a round or two pretty quickly, making it a solid portable experience if you’re on the go. I wouldn’t highly recommend it by any means, but if you’re in the mood for some classic board game experiences, Othello can scratch that itch.
