Though i am curious how Stratego would play if you were allowed to play diagonally.
How do you play then? Do you allow all pieces to move diagonally, or only certain ranks?
I might give it a try some time to see what its like

Personally, I have played a lot on the Probe computer program and the game options allow for Captains (5's) to move diagonally, for Lieutenants (6's) to jump over adjacent pieces, and Sergeants (7's) to cross barriers. You can chek or uncheck these prior to playing to play by the rules you want and to disallow the rules you don't want. Personally, I like the traditional rules, because that's how I have always played... But, others might have learned a different way.
It seems as if a lot of the variations of Stratego over the years have variations in the rules, as well. People likely aslo have their own "House Rules" that they have played by, kinda like how some people put money in the middle of the board for the "Free Parking" spot in Monopoly.

There were one less character and a bit different order of ranks (see the picture)
Another thing was that when the opponent captures your piece with his stronger piece, he doesn't show you his capturing piece. I think this adds to the strategy, as you can defeat many pieces without revealing your piece's exact rank, unless the opponent decides to attacks you.
And the main difference is that all pieces could move diagonally, though could only attack a square next to them. This makes it much easier for example to move between your mines which could be effectively placed in some zigzag pattern. The scout can only move multiple squares forward or backward.

How come you can't go diagonally? I always played stratego like that! It really confuses me.
Lol,....maybe the ISF will implement this rule as well one day.
I wouldn't be surprised
