By Jason Kirkfield VINE VOICE on January 13, 2012
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, inverting the familiar 1-9 scale. Historically, the most powerful piece (Marshal) 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 retro ("Vintage"/"Nostalgia") 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 often more expensive Vintage edition. Another pitfall for would-be buyers is that Hasbro also 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 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.

I purchased this version of Stratego about 9 months ago. I wanted to let my 3 boys experience the game the way I remembered it. I reviewed various sites and found that there were several changes to the game that I didn't particularly appreciate (such as that the new versions only use 30 pieces/army). I'm sure Hasbro was simply cutting costs, but I was pretty perturbed.

This 50th Anniversary Stratego exceeded my expectations.

Gameplay:
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.

Quality:
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.

There are so many versions of Stratego out there now (Lord of the Rings, etc) that the original has been lost it seems. This version is the real thing, with the pieces that are stamped with silver paint and aren't numbered backwards.

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!

My husband and i got this game for Christmas. Its very enjoyable. "fun" is not the right word. Its not a barrel of laughs, but we do very much enjoy it. Our 8 & 11 year old nephews are able to play it as well. In my opinion its like playing battleship on a chess board. Great fun!!!

Real good quality and its the game I remember. No cheesy stickers on the pieces, so that's great. The outside packaging is the only complaint... the "book" format is awkward and doesn't seal the game up tightly when not in use. Otherwise, its the game we all know and love.

This is the best version of Stratego you can buy if you want the real deal. It's got the REAL classic game and pieces, and is packaged well, and at a reasonable price. MY ONLY gripe is the quad fold board. I hate quad fold boards.

Still... 4.9 stars.

Yes, THIS is what Straego is supposed to look like. I purchased the one they have out now at Target with the reversed numbers and cheesy stickers of transformer like characters. I couldn't get with the cheap look of it and had to return it. This costs a bit more, but it's worth playing with the classic style and look.
