The wooden case is a tight fit for the player pieces and the board which is very nice so things don't slide around.

The wooden box it comes in is very stylish and the board itself is very nice and clear.

What prompted me to write this were two valid complaints from the reviews in the current edition of this game here:

Stratego-Milton Bradley Board Games

Namely, that MB reversed the ranking system we're all used to and, well, left the final part of the manufacturing process to the buyer to complete. If you're accustomed to the Marshal as #1 and the Scouts as #9, and don't want to sit and apply stickers just so to 80 Stratego men before your first game, the new edition will frustrate you.

Your deliverance has arrived here in the Library Stratego Game Set. The blue and red plastic pieces arrive ready to engage, stamped and embossed in glorious gold and silver, just the way they used to be. They're numbered Marshal 1, General 2, down to the Scouts as 9, and the board looks right, too.

The part that's better than my long lost original (All it takes to ruin a set is to lose a single piece out the torn ends of that old cardboard beater box) is the game case. It's a finished, polished sturdy thing of solid wood that fits nicely among the leather bound classic volumes on my library shelf. (I'm hoping the kids just might be curious enough to browse the neighboring works of Dickens, Kipling, or Bronte after they play it one day). Treat it well and it will become a treasured heirloom.

Stratego was introduced in the United States in the early 1960s. Offering strategic elements of chess on a familiar board game motif, it became a very popular game in American households during the 1960s and 70s. By 2000, no doubt caving to constant reports of how stupid American children were becoming, Hasbro changed the numbering system on the pieces, completely inverting the familiar 1-9 scale. Historically, the most powerful piece (Marshall) was marked "1" while the least powerful piece (Scout) was marked "9." More recent editions contain pieces marked in the opposite manner, with higher ranked (i.e., stronger) pieces displaying higher numbers. This decision was not met with universal applause, and in response (or perhaps it was planned all along to generate multiple streams of revenue?), Hasbro released a "Vintage" edition. So if you wish to own the same Stratego game you grew up playing, you are forced to find an older game or else purchase the more expensive Vintage edition. Another pitfall for would-be buyers is that Hasbro recently capitalized on the popular fantasy theme, releasing a version of Stratego which replaces the classic Napoleonic army with medieval themed pieces (i.e., dragon, dwarf, slayer). Confusingly, this version is NOT named Stratego--the D&D Battle or Stratego--the Fire and Ice Edition or any other moniker that might be helpful in distinguishing among them. Note also that this version also reduced the number of pieces from forty to thirty.

To recap, there are three current Hasbro (Milton Bradley) offerings. They are all offered on Amazon (at varying price levels) and I will cross reference the manufacturer's part numbers and also provide the relevant links to the games on Hasbro's Web site, although you cannot purchase directly there.

I've noticed that the standard, card-board boxed version of Stratego has very many reviews. Most agree with me that the game is great. So, I'll be brief about the game play. There is perhaps a small amount of luck involved in the game. But, that is more than compensated for in the game's unique pro's. Like the requirement for extensive planning (as you arrange the pieces any way you want before play begins) and the need for a good memory, since you can only see the rank of on of your opponents pieces if its involved in an attack (and then it may be too late!).

This particular version is wonderful. I like the wooden bookcase box. The board is beautiful. And, the art on both is great. The pieces, as far as I can see, are exactly the same as the standard version. The board does have to fold up to 1/6th of it expanded size to get into the box. But, it seems to be well made and it laid flat without any trouble when playing. ... As I write this, this version is priced less than the standard cardboard box version! That's crazy. I would much prefer this one even at the same price.

Your kids will love this game and not even know to what extent it is exercising their minds. I played with my son today and it was a blast for me, too. Sometimes you play a game again that you had played as a kid and are disappointed. But, not in this case. Stratego rocks forever.

Verified Purchase
My sons discovered Stratego while visiting their grandparents, who had a vintage 1970s game. They loved it so much that I knew I wanted to buy it as a Christmas gift for them.

However, like most classic toys from my youth, the current versions have been cheapened by plastic parts and cardboard boxes. Even the rules to the new Stratego games have changed, according to reviews I read.

I discovered this CLASSIC version of Stratego and immediately ordered it. It is everything I remember from my youth, and my boys love it! The durable wooden box is an added plus to the classic board and pieces, too. The price was also a very reasonable $19.99. It was shipped by Target, via Amazon, so possibly you could avoid the shipping charges by going to a Target store.

If you want to buy Stratego for your family game collection, get THIS one.
