I like some of Maxroelof's strategies he uses in his stratego videos.

Nice strategy. It seems more defensive to me. I am a very defensive player.  :D

Hey Strobe,

Nice setup. Only slight thing I would change if I were to use it would be the two diagonal luits on the right. They are a bit open and you could easily lose 1 and possibly 2. I would put luit from above bomb down in between spy and bomb and put the serg where the luit was, then put your scout where your serg was. So you have two diagonal scouts, and a diagonal luit and serg.

Regards,

Losermaker

Here are three setups that used to be my top 3

 

If you ever want to try bombing off a side, the first one is the best for doing it (in my experiences with it). You can also swap the 4th bomb behind the other three to where the serg is(makes for more manoeuvrability in the end game.).

 

The 2nd one is a standard sort of setup but fairly well thought out for a defensive game.

 

The 3rd is one of my favourite tournament setups. It was an interesting setup to play with and the spy in the middle with colonel could make for some good bluffing and would capture the marshal fairly regularly. This setups main weakness was at the end game. If you were playing a better player they would know to trap the two miners and sergeant under the bombs sometimes giving you two-three less pieces.

Thanks for the tip. I mostly prefer having at least one flag bluffer. It cost a miner for the confident players. A scout exchange or loss for the cautions. And if you got luck a good trap.

On my level I find that I might play several games well with a certain setup, then one day I lose with it and seem to go into a losing streak. That's when, if I don't actually take a break from playing, I'll try a different setup. Sometimes the fix is so instant that I go right back on a winning tear.

What I think is that my setups don't change so much as how I play with them. I think I grow too predictable, or something, and hence the need to mix it up.

Of course, I don't need to mix it up every game like a higher player just yet. I'm always playing someone new.

My two cents from the peanut gallery. 😃

this happened to me too. Once your see that your "best setup" is no more efficient you need another one. Sometimes also just a few "little changes" gives excellent results specially against multiple account players. for example if your game opening remains unchanged a multiple account player may recognize it from a previous game and know already where to go then to catch a colonel or a major. So let your opening unchanged but put a bomb there where you had a col and put your flag in a different location ... these little changes might surprise more than one ....

I change my "best set up" every 2-3 weeks to try and avoid this problem.

It really depends on your opponent, and of course your own skill. Me, for example, has one for ELO 100-200, for 200-350, and so on. Of course you also have to look, to the rating of the person, and his experience. I can't put a setup in here, but for you, this may also be a good setup, if you know how to play with it. I should recommend, only playing with it, with 270>. It is more a defending setup.

 

2     4     S      6      3     4       2      2      5      2

6     7     10    8      B     5       B      7      2      6

5     8     6      2      7     B       5      3       2      9

2     3     B      F      3      3      B      4      B      4

 

1st Left side 4 up

2nd Left side 7 up

3rd Left side 10 to the left

 

Let it like this. Don't move in the middle, only when your opponent attacks

 

After that just walk and attack at the right side, but make sure your 9 stays secret.

Yes, but the disadvantage is, that when one or two bombs are captured, your main defence line is gone.

But the defence on the left and right middle is absolutely good. When I play with it, I win almost always, but you only have to play this with a not to high player.

 

It is not for really unexperienced players, but it is really a setup to improve your tactical sight!
