In basic Stratego your pieces move or attack with the goal of capturing your opponent's flag. In Waterloo your turn is comprised of 3 actions that can be distributed among your troops as you please with the goal of placing two units on your enemies lines of retreat (2 spaces on your baseline) or killing your opponent's commander. Move one unit twice and then attack, or move 3 separate pieces; the choice is yours. You're in command of light infantry, line infantry, light cavalry, heavy cavalry and artillery. The French and English/Allied forces are led by their commander in chief, Wellington or Napoleon, along with their commanders, Uxbridge and Ney. Depending on which version of the game you're playing (3 available) if you lose your commander you lose 1 action and if you lose your commander in chief you lose 2 actions, or possibly the game.
Advanced rules add terrain like hills and buildings which offer offensive and defensive advantages consistent with the actual battlefield in Belgium.
The rules are quite good, but have suffered a little in their translation to English. The cavalry presented me with the most challenge to understand. They are the only piece that can move orthogonally across the entire board until they confront another unit, and then may attack in the same action using their "charge" ability. Infantry move for one action, then may attack for a separate action.
In traditional Stratego fashion, when two pieces fight the unit with the higher strength prevails. In Waterloo, however, if two units of the same strength fight, then a dice is rolled. The outcome of this roll can be instant victory, defeat or a frenzied slaughter that can decimate nearby friendly or enemy units as well. This is a wonderful mechanic that always makes confrontation fresh and unpredictable.
Another improvement is the inclusion of maneuver cards. Each player receives 4 cards at the start of the game that for 1 action each can allow movement of multiple units, add offensive or defensive strength, synchronized artillery fire or peeking at enemy units. These are played once and discarded, so choose when to play them carefully!
After 12 rounds the Prussians arrive to aide Wellington and attempt to swing the battle into the Allies favor. These units arrive in groups of 2 and also offer the Allies 1 additional action as long as their commander, Von Bulow, doesn't die in battle.
Stratego Waterloo breathes new life into a old family favorite, offering deeper strategy and challenging decisions... and you'll probably learn a thing or two along the way about June 18, 1815.
