The theme of the festival 2021 - Reversi !

This year's theme is "Reversi!", which was selected from open call.
The theme has the following thinking in mind:

"Reversi" is a board game for two played on a board with black and white disks. Players take turns placing disks on the board with the goal of bracketing their opponent's disks between their own. If successful, the bracketed disks are then turned over to show that they are now possessed by the player that has bracketed them. The winner is the player with the most disks on the board when all of the disks have been played. The exciting part of this game is that the player that is losing near the end of the game can reverse their fortune with a lucky move. After having been canceled for two years in a row because of typhoon and COVID-19, we're hoping that this year's Tokyo Tech Festival (2021) will turn the tables and be the winner.
