Forget who says: "just take the corner!". First of all, this is completely WRONG, second, if it was not, well, ok, then I can say about chess: "just promote a pawn to a queen!". There's WAY too many other things to consider, regular world championships are held since 30 years and competition is really high. On the other side, you can play it as a light game if you want, much more than other games like GO and CHESS.
Strategy and tactics are well balanced, the game is quick enough, complexity is at the good point.
A complex theory has been studied for this game, let me suggest to read something to understand the depth and beauty of this game, before starting; there are a lot of theory courses on Internet. There's not only "eat a lot and take corners", and even this idea is often wrong: you should care a lot for mobility. Other concepts that are touched by theory are unbalanced edges, parity and stable discs, that require a little bit of study. Only then you'll discover that Othello has a lot to tell you, this is not just a quick mind puzzle, it's a game that gives its best after some study, in competitive tournaments. So, don't pay too much attention to what is written by occasional players, if you really intend to find a great game that lasts for all your life, this may be the choice, if you don't want backgammon's dice, you don't like checkers and go and chess are too complex and too slow for your like.
Othello/Reversi is the best game ever invented and I'm not scared to write this. I own a dozen of different boards and still I'm not tired of playing it with friends or in tournaments, and I've played more than 20,000 games, right now. Find another game that permits you to play so many games without getting bored..!

My favorite of the classic games. Unfortunately it falls victim to the 'no one will play it with me anymore' category so I haven't really played it for many many years. This is one of those games that upon first play you will not grasp the complexities. Like 'Go' it can be played simply but over time patterns and strategies begin to emerge. I thougth I had it all figured out until the www came about and I found out about the world championships and the strategies they used there... suddenly I felt like a beginner again.

Whoever made up that game, thought of me. Great game, simple to learn, but takes a lot of time to master.
