Introduction and Download

A GUI for playing Othello against yourself or the computer, includes such features as;

  • 1 or 2 player mode
  • 4 option difficulty setting ranging from Wimpy (no edge weighting, only looks 1 move ahead) to Difficult (severe edge weighting, looks 6 moves ahead)
  • Rules dialog if you forget, or don’t know how.


  1. MCR Installer - The MATLAB component runtime that must be installed before running the program installer.
  2. Othello_pkg - Standalone executable (windows only)
  3. Othello.m - Matlab file


If the Matlab Runtime has not been installed download and install the Matlab runtime file. Then download the counter_pkg.exe program and run it. This will create counter.exe which is the standalone application. Alternatively you can download the Matlab files in a .zip package and run from the Matlab command prompt.
