Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
That opening quote is from my child, a new player to the world of Stratego, and it sums up the game quite well. The basic goals of this game haven't changed with the passing of time - set up your pieces secretively, and try to capture the enemy's flag to win the battle.

This is the 50th anniversary version of Stratego, and here are the most notable changes:

The Newer version-->

(1) Distant planet military setting
(2) Each player gets 30 pieces
(3) High numbered pieces are powerful - (10 = Marshall, 9 = General, etc)
(4) The Spotter - a piece that can capture any opponent's piece by correctly guessing its rank.

The Older version-->

(1) Classic wartime military setting
(2) Each player gets 40 pieces.
(3) Low numbered pieces are powerful - (1 = Marshall, 2 = General, etc)
(4) There is no Spotter in this version

The basic strategies remain - using misdirection, placing bombs either near or far away from the flag, having the Spy lay in wait for the charging attack of the Marshall, and so forth.

The 2 Spotter pieces are a real game-changer. In the original game, I usually remembered where the bombs were, but paid little attention to other pieces. This newer version of Stratego rewards the player who memorizes the ranks of their opponents pieces, since the Spotters can defeat ANY piece on the board (as long as they are guessed correctly).

It took me a while to get used to playing this game with a lesser number of pieces and the reversed structure of power, but my daughter picked it up right away because she didn't have to un-learn the older version.

If you like classic Stratego, this might take a while to get used to, but take it from this old dog: Calling in an orbital laser strike to decimate your foes is a GREAT new trick to learn.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I haven't played "Stratego" for a long, long time, since about Junior High School. "Stratego" was my gateway game into more complicated strategy games like Risk and Axis & Allies, and then more expensive and time-consuming tactical battle games like Warhammer 40k, and of course Chess. When I saw this new version of "Stratego" available, I was eager to give it a shot and blow up some bombs with my Miner for nostalgia's sake.

Right out of the box I was surprised at the update. Instead of the classic wooden Napoleonic war figures we get Halo-inspired futuristic space warriors on plastic counters. I didn't mind that too much. I loved the Risk 2210 A.D. update, and I know games have to stay current.

What was disappointing was that the game had been simplified with a smaller playing field and about ten less pieces per side. I hate it when games are "dumbed down" for a short attention-span generation. There is one new piece added, The Spotter, which adds a bit more random chance to the game as well. The Spotter can guess a piece in front of him, and if you are right then that piece is removed from combat.

I was surprised at how fast the games went. I played with my wife, and we were able to play about five games in thirty minutes.

I recently purchased Stratego because I haven't played in a while. So I thought when I bought this, I was getting original Stratego but with a different look. Oh boy, was I mistaken. The numbering system is all messed up (10 is the highest), they added a piece called a "spotter" that can kill anything if you guess the opposing piece correctly, they remove ten pieces from each side (you get 30 instead of 40). All around, I was expecting to play Stratego, but they did a bait and switch here, do not purchase if you are trying to play Stratego because THIS ONE IS NOT ORIGINAL STRATEGO AT ALL.

I played this game as a child, and wanted to introduce my son to it. I bought it not realizing that some of the fundamental rules and makeup of the game have changed. The pieces are now futuristic, which is fine and fun. But there are some other, ill-conceived changes.

First off, the board is smaller and there are fewer pieces. Which means less room to maneuver. And the pieces themselves are terribly cheap plastic.

Secondly, there are 10 fewer pieces per side. And despite the fact that there are fewer pieces, the designers saw fit to introduce a new, and in my view awful, piece called a spotter. Spotters basically allow you to query an opposing piece without attacking it. And if you guess what the opposing piece is, you just take it. Just dumb, in my opinion. Can't remember the last time I saw such a stupid feature in a game.

Quite honestly the reduction in pieces, the reduction in quality and the additional spotter rules ruined the game for me. I'm returning it.

Guess I need to find a classic stratego game.
