Starts at 1:36. I don't care that he doesn't know the game. He still references Stratego.

I agree, the spotters really change up the game. You can no longer just trade down when you know you have the advantage. I believe the Infiltrator piece in the Jumbo version of Stratego Classic is a better move then the sci fi version. The Sci-fi version only allows a 8x10 board with only 30 pieces on each team. With Stratego Classic, you get a 10x10 board with 40 pieces on each team and an extra Infiltrator piece that you can choose to play with or not. With only 1 "so called" spotter in game, a 10x10 board and 40 pieces on each team..... imo it's a winner.

Jumbo also announced there will be another version apart from the scifi-one.
It's called Kings & Wizards but I can't find any info about this.
If it's a variant like the scifi-version, also with special adapted rules, this will also be great!

I think the 2 Spotters is a bit much at times. This allows the room for error and a lot of mistakes can be compensated.

The Infiltrator can basically snipe people from 2 squares away unlike the Spotters. So in a whole, you have 1 Super Spotter and 39 pieces on each team. In this case, the Spy is still useful, since the Infiltrator can only cover 1 flank and the center.

With 2 Spotters, the Spy is almost useless, since the Spotters can kill more than just the Marshal. On top of that, there are only 30 pieces per team. Since the board is smaller and there are lesser units, the 2 Spotters are your go to units once a Major, Colonel, General or Marshal is exposed. Since there are only 1 Major and 1 Colonel in game, sacrificing a Spotter for a Major is worth it in this case, leaving you with an extra Spotter in your reserves.

With only 1 Infiltrator in game, you have to use this piece wisely, since there are 40 pieces you have to deal with. Using the Infiltrator too soon can really cripple your defenses and those pesky scouts can run him down with ease. Don’t get me wrong, I like the Sci-Fi version, but I think the original version with the Infiltrator is a better game.

Will the site also be considering Fire and Ice? I know that will be a programming nightmare with all the special moves each piece would have, but just imagine the fierce attacks and counter attacks and no lead is safe with a dragon that can fly anywhere on the board.

Trickz,

There is no actual Stratego Game that I have heard of called Kings and Warriors. Maybe this Kings & Warriors edition is actually Stratego Legends. The rules for that are here:

http://www.wizards.c...es/stratego.pdf

Could also be the Fire and Ice version which you can find the rules here:
