1) What has the scout got to do with a memorize tool? Right, nothing...and I do know that the scout's move has been changed through the years from one move in the begin to long distance moves now. That had to evolve eventually.
But that's not the issue here so I don't understand why you're bringing this subject up.
2)This site doesn't charge an amount to play. Battlecoins can be bought and be used to change your pawns, playgrounds, avatars...so that is still better than Metaforge where you had to pay through Paypal to become a specific member.
There you had no choice. Here you have.
3)If Stratego is dead according to you,...then why do they sell every year still the original game?
Why are there so many Stratego games out there in all sorts of variations and this for more than 80 years long?
And especially the last years it's been active again,.....with again another variant Sci-fi that will be implemented on this site.
In order to produce all those games, there's gotta be profit otherwise there wouldn't be Stratego.
Your comment about Stratego being dead because of a stupid issue like this is just insane.
You can call me traditional, conservative, whatever you like but I love the pure original gameplay.
That's how it's been from the beginning and that's how it was ment to play.
If you can't handle that, then play another game. This is a thinkgame where you have to plan and memorize in order to plan.
That's what made this game so great.
The only rule that may need an adaption is the 2s rule (which is also NOT original, replaced the 5move rule and was being implemented by the ISF). Or an anti-chase rule if you want to call it like that.
For the rest nothing should ever be changed with this game.
And if you want to variate the rules, you can customize your own games or you can play other official variants, whatever you want.
But don't be arrogant to speak so called for the "entire Stratego community" that the pure nostalgic game lovers are ruining the game and blablaba,......that is YOUR opinion.
That's your good right to think that but I certainly do not think like that.
I'm not gonna speak for other people here (although I do think that the majority here don't want a memorize tool) and if I were you, I wouldn't do that either.
Let every variant exist in their value.
And let us have our original nostalgic traditional PURE game.
You may use your memory tool in another game perhaps?
How about good old Memory?
"Original, as the game was intended to be.".... lol, that sounds like something out of the bible
I don't read that crap. I also don't understand why you're bringing another subject up again.
Playing games has got nothing to do with reading stupid religion books....
I also don't understand why (and that's not only you but many others) always compare Stratego with chess.
Stratego is more comparable with poker than it is with chess.
But that's pure my opinion then
