link to Four in a Line link to Four in a Line Four in a Line
Four in a Line is several centuries old and was especially popular aboard ship where the unique board helped hold the pieces which might otherwise be thrown around by the movement of the sea. This is a game that can now be completely solved by fast computers, but is still an excellent, challenging pastime for human players.
link to Reversi link to Reversi Reversi
This game, based on inverting lines of counters, originated in Victorian times as a popular parlour game. It is now more widely know as the game Othello which is a very widely played casual game. Its attraction is that the game is very dynamic and just having many more counters is not a clear indication that you are winning.
