One of my favorite games when I was a kid (early 80s). Though nobody would want to play with me after a while, because I was so good at it. Unfortunately I never found anyone to challenge me and I stopped playing over 15 years ago.

One of the all time great games. Endless game play possibilities because you choose how to set up your pieces. Easy to learn, easy to play, hard to play well. First part of game is choosing how to set up your pieces. Second part is playing out your set up and reacting as you discovery how your opponent has set up his pieces.

One of my all time favorites. When it could be played on the ZONE. I got a chance to play against some World Class Players. What a thrill to come away with a win occasionally.

All he got was more thankless work, from a man who ain't even asked his name. Sure, I may be the one who dreamt up the Walls and the Bastion, but the Kid made 'em real, not me.

one of the best games for two players...
You can play it with two decks of playing cards also, if you don't need the feeling of the battlefield...

My absolute favorite as a kid, and despite all the hobby gaming goodness I've discovered in the last few years, still my favorite today. It's the only one I honestly don't think I could ever get sick of (as much as I love some of the games I've rated 9, I could see myself getting burned out on any of them). From the possibilities in the opening setup to the strategic movement of troops to the tension raised by bluffs to the metagame when playing with the same opponent, this game has a lot to offer, even 60+ years later.

My first real board game I've played when I was a child thirty-something years ago. On a vacation I saw a kid with a shabby homemade paper copy, asked about it, and we spent the next ten days playing it day and night. I was amazed, I said myself: This dude is a fucking genius to invent such a game! and after the vacation I forgot about it completely.

Many years later when I realized that the snotty five years old bastard -also known as my older son- is actually good for something other than 'now you see me, now you don't', we've submerged into board gaming through the usual gateways like Carcassonne, Stratego came back to me, and came back with a revenge. I didn't even know it's name, but remembering some of the rules it was easy to hunt a copy down.

Since then it's my second most sacred game in my collection, almost nothing could came close to it in excitement, replayability and variety thanks to the uncountable alternate rules.

A classie game with no flaws. Just remember, you live and die by your piece set up. Surrounding your flag makes it more difficult for the opponent if there miners are dead. Kill There miners. Use your scouts, but save a couple for end game.

This was my favorite game growing up. It gets a down grade because they changed the numbering system in newer versions and it totally screws me up.
Update... The 50th Anniversary tin has the numbering I'm familiar with... Yay!

I'm biased to this as this is the very game that got me into heavier boardgaming... a nice little game with a reasonable amount of strategy. Somewhat like chess. The classic version is best.

Another favorite of mine. Once you get a couple of advanced players together it is always fun to watch the bluffing incorporated with the strategy. In college I played this with one of my roommates almost every evening. We started to come up with variations and other goofy ideas. I'm always up for a good game whenever someone is ready.

I know this is a simple one, but I have loved this game since I was a little boy. I routinely could beat anyone in my family who would play me. I still have my original copy, and I can't wait to teach it to my boy when he grows up.

I don't profess to be any board gaming master, but to date I haven't lost a game of Stratego in 10+ years now. One of my all time favorites to play. Guile and deceit at it's best!

I've very good at this game. Our best modification: tape small mirrors on two of the scouts (per side) and have them be REAL spies. Just don't let your opponent see you cranking your neck around as you try to read the values of the units behind your spies.

This game is very good. Great combination of strategy and luck. No dice throwing which is always good on a strategy game and it reminds you to a sum of chess, checkers and miniatures game. A new favourity for me.
