if someone prefers 15 sec free for each move then think.................
or he is young child (it's about playground) or he is cheater using software to keep track of pieces or using spreadsheets during the game !!!
Your are obviously an experienced player. Therefore I understand you are quick. But I am not a child, and I am not using software ore spreadsheets. I am just a beginner who is used to calculate variations from playing chess. And in Stratego you sometimes also have to calculate. Of course not that deep like in chess, but some moves for sure. One example: Recently I played an endgame, where I had one scout, some miners and at least one 4 left. None of them had moved, and my opponent knew nothing about my setup. He had for pieces left, all higher than mine (5/6). I knew his hole setup. He had to protect his flag with one of his pieces from one side, the other 3 pieces could move. I was not sure, but thougt this should be a draw, although I had to play carefully. He wanted to win and chased my scout for I guess more than 100 moves. And there were a lot of situations, where I had to calculate, in order to keep the piece. Sometimes 15 sec were not enough. Finally I run out of time and lost. There have been some connectivity ore software problems too, which means that the pieces did often not react immidiatly, but since this happens sometimes you have to take this also into consideration when talking about move time.
