Description

Stratego was created by Jacques Johan Mogendorff before 1942, but was derived from the game L'Attaque, invented by Hermance Edan.

Rules

Played on a board of 10x10 squares. The board has two 2x2 zones which cannot be entered, represented as water on the battlefield. each player controls 40 pieces which have individual army ranks. The goal is to capture the opponent's flag. Pieces can move only one space orthogonally. the Scout piece can move any number of spaces orthogonally. Pieces may attempt to capture an opposing piece; when doing so the ranks are revealed and the lower ranking piece is captured; if they are of equal rank they are both removed. There are bomb pieces which cannot move. Bombs eliminate other pieces attacking it and can only be removed by a miner. The spy can only attack the Marshall or the Flag.
