What is your best Stratego initial setup?

There is no objective best setup...You have to adapt your setups to your opponent's style and way of playing

At Sevenseas level he will play almost all games vs opponents he has played many times already.

 

At the 250 ELO level opponents style is not really a consideration when setting up as you typically play 50 games and have 50 first time opponents.

 

I would say to make some different set ups and play several games on each and see how well they work with your own style of play.

I tried to post a table but it didn't work.  I hit edit and deleted it. It said I had to type something, so this is just a bunch of filler words. Ignore this.

The setup I used in my youtube game versus Nortrom is the best setup versus opponents with ELO < 500 Points.

I call my best setup "Stray Bullets."

If I used this strategy, I would bluff like I had a power piece on the left side to protect the colonel.

out of all those setups, the one Fairway mentioned looks best to me.

Are those your setups John, or are they other players?

Marsh/Gen side by side has been done a million times.

You have NO idea. It is absolutely ridiculous how many people put their marsh/general on the same side as my mine field  :D Then they always attack the same bomb with both pieces.  :huh:  I see this pattern the most with silver spies. They seem to go lotto the most. Had at least 4 of them do this.

I would love to take credit for that setup,  :D but in case you didn't notice it was created by John Collasky.

@Chewtoy,

I don't really like the setup for the marsh and gen position, it just looks to me like the best thought out setup. Personally I would not use it, I just like it more than the others, which had some major flaws. Also the second one John posted looks ok, reminds me of a setup Sohal used on me a couple of times.

 

I also have some setups I don't use anymore, but they are still decent. I might see if I can post some up ;).
