Case Study: Game Design

Introduction

A challenge was presented to implement the game of Othello using the MEAN stack.

MEAN

The app was scaffolded for a MEAN stack using a generator. The game was broken down into basic components (game pieces, tiles, game board, scoreboard, etc.). Each component was coded to handle a particular function.

Game Design

The game algorithm was developed after researching and reviewing the rules of Othello and various implementations of Othello.
