Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. Same as reversis.
- n. A modern game played by two persons with sixty-four counters. differently colored on opposite sides, on a board of sixty-four squares. A player, on placing a counter on a vacant square, “reverses” (that is, turns over, and thus appropriates) all his opponent's pieces lying in unbroken line in any direction between the piece thus placed and any other of his own pieces already on the board. A counter cannot be removed from its square, but may be reversed again and again.
- So named because the playing pieces have two differently colored sides, which are reversed when captured to indicate that they are now the capturer's. (Wiktionary)
