Phlip (pronounced flip) is a simple combination of pentomino placement and the piece flipping mechanic from Reversi and Othello.  Variations on this theme were published under several names in the 1980's, including Domain Boomerang and Chameleon.   Obviously, the number of and type of polyominos and the exact rules for flipping have many variations.

Rules:  Players take turns placing a piece anywhere on the board.  All adjacent pieces of the opposite color are flipped to match the newly placed piece.

Winner: is the player with the most squares his color when no more pieces can be placed.

Robots:  Hard to beat.
