Have had this since 1975, although I probably haven't played it in close to 20 years. Enjoyed it back in the day.

This is a great game. It has a chess-like strategic feel to it, yet it isn't prone to heavy analysis before the game begins. I have fond memories of this game from my childhood. It is definitely underrated among games here on the BGG: the rules are simple and elegant, it lends itself to strategic decision-making, and it is fun. For those who are searching for two-player games, Stratego ranks highly in my book.

I own the Onyx Stratego version.

I had discovered chess some time before and was still having lots of fun with it so asking for a boardgame for X-Mas or my birthday suddenly became a viable option.

So I asked for and got Stratego - and it was a nice version with round plastic tower-like pieces.

Tip : trying to bluff your little sister into thinking your flag is in a corner surrounded by bombs while it's actually in the front row does not work.

I liked it less than chess because once your marshal got killed by the opposing spy or you managed to kill the opposing spy it was game-over - thinking about it so many years later this might have been our first case of group-think.

Anyway, it only got played a couple of times - also because it was a 2-player only game and we usually had some friends around willing to play a game, so games like Clue got played a whole lot more. Trying to catch colonel Mustard with the chandelier in the library was a whole lot interesting than Stratego.

Probably not really as good as I remember it from my childhood, but I do have fond memories of it. The joy for me was always in setting up the pieces, and seeing how my strategy played out.

Good memories growing up. So many different strategies to try. My favorite was "the bluff" when you put your flag right up front behind the water!

In many ways this game is the one that really got me to appreciate the head-to-head games; especially, those I played growing up like Battleship, Guess Who, Connect4, Chinese Checkers, Checkers, and Chess. It's also probably why I have interest in playing Othello, Go, Hive, Tzaar, Yinsh, Pentago, and many others like those.

Simple "wargame" more appropriately described as "capture the flag". Very simple to learn and play, some strategy required. Games play out rather quickly, with setup often taking longer than the actual game. Still, rather enjoyable for a few rounds.

I was never very good at this game, but I played it a ton as a kid. I loved that players set up their armies however they liked before the game. It added a bit of strategy to the pre-game as well as the game itself.

A classic that holds up! My introduction to strategic board gaming was through this game, and I still enjoy playing. It's not at all flashy, but there's a ton of depth to this that only a few playthroughs won't reveal.
