While I agree, that this is a very cool variation of the 18 sprites
trick, I don't think it's too useful for any of the games mentioned
above. Othello and Go require the posibility of empty fields, which
this trick doesn't provide. And for Okie Dokie you might want to
use the monochrome version of this trick, since it allows more sprites
per row.

Go has a grid background with no 2nd color under the sprites, right? Using the color changing routine that Thomas has, you could simply set the empty sprites to the same color as the playfield.
