The game Reversi was invented in the end of 19th century but there were two people who claimed as the inventors of the game. Lewis Waterman and John W.Mollett both claimed that they are the inventors of the game and both Mollett and Waterman produced their own versions of the game in 1882.
The game Reversi was originated from an ancient English game named 'The game of Annexation' which was shortly known as Annex and this game was invented by Mollett in 1870. The game was played on a board with a shape of cross and the first publishing date of this game is 1876. In 1880 a magazine named The Queen published a game that is quite similar to Mollett's version of Reversi and the game shared similar rules.
The revolution of Reversi after the Goro Hasegawa version was quite stunning and the game rose to international popularity. Today Reversi is a game that even has international tournaments. The Japanese game company Tsukuda Original registered Reversi under the name Othello, a game which is considered as the predecessor of Othello.
