Other reversed/anti othello players

There are a few other programs available on the internet, which also play reversed type games. They aren’t strong players, however, I learnt that the “not public” version of Herakles is able to play reversed games well too. Despite my several attempts to compete with Herakles, Kostas (the author of Herakles) couldn’t find the time to play on the CGS server. I hope this version will be made public soon.
