To recap, there are three Hasbro (Milton Bradley) offerings. They are all offered on Amazon (at varying price points on the secondary market, i.e., Amazon Marketplace) and I will cross reference the manufacturer's part numbers below.Read more ›
This 50th Anniversary Stratego exceeded my expectations.
This is a terrific game of strategy. To me this game is like a blend of chess (strategy) and memory (to recall the hidden pieces you've managed to reveal). The concepts are not hard to understand (capture the flag, lower number wins, etc.) and it plays pretty quickly. Even my 5-year son enjoys playing. Granted, he's not the best strategist yet, but he's learning very quickly how to set up his pieces to attack and defend.
Before purchasing this version I had read a couple of negative reviews on this Amazon site about its lack of quality. I'm glad I purchased it anyway as I have not found any quality issues. One person wrote that the pieces were smaller than the original. That is NOT the case. My parents have the 1986 edition, which I used recently when visiting them, and there was no perceptable size difference with the pieces. Another person wrote that the plastic was thinner and they could see through them. When playing under NORMAL, 75-watt lighting condition (as opposed to possibly an interrogation light) I was not able to see through them. (Who knows, maybe s/he had x-ray vision or was telepathetic.) In any case, I could not perceive any difference in quality from the 1986 edition to this 50th Anniversary edition.Read more ›
The board is nice and the instructions are good. Only giving this 4 stars because the giant book isn't the best box for this game and is somewhat annoying. Other than that, it's great!
The only other thing I would add is that Stratego is basically a precursor to a game called Generals, that is electronic and beeps to signal which piece wins a confrontation. The huge advantage to this is that the true identity of the victor is not revealed; whereas with Stratego, the players have to state what their piece is in order to determine who wins. "Beeping the victor" helps keep the identity of your strong pieces secret longer.
The book that comes with it is very good too. It also gives you several variations of gameplay to mix things up a bit.
I did see this game at a local shop for $6 cheaper, much to my surprise.
I highly recommend it.
