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.

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 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 had loved this game as a child and still find it fun now. It is a fun strategy game that has some challenge, makes you think a little bit, but is simpler & loads more fun than chess. It builds & uses more skill than checkers, has more strategy than pure luck based games, but plays faster and requires less than chess. It is a perfect balance for me to be mentally stimulating and yet not be entirely based on skill of the player.

Basically, you have 3 rows of pieces that you place with values 1 to 10, a flag, and a few bombs. Higher number beats lower number. You move only one space forward, back, left, or right. And you want to capture the opponent's flag. To save 10 from just running around the board, you the lowest numbers, there is a special near-zero piece called a spy that beats 10, otherwise is effectively a 0 in battle, and 1-3 have special moves -- 1 can move & guess an opponent's number to capture it in the same turn, 2 can move more than one space & attack (although usually lose), and 3 can defeat bombs. So there is some balance and how you play matters.

This version seems great to me. I don't recall it being any different when I was a child, and I don't know if we even knew all the rules as a child for pieces 1-3. The build quality seems pretty good. But you will have to affix stickers for all the pieces, so be ready to apply some stickers when you first open it rather than just starting to play. The instructions are nicely done, easy to read & follow, in color, and offer some tips. The only thing I miss from the old box of 30 years ago is that the new box shape is smaller than the width of the board once unfolded. So during setup, you can't just hold the box as a veil between the two sides while setting up. So you have to take some care in how you set up to not give away your setup by placing your flag first while the other person doesn't see the values but can guess based on how you setup.
