Just curious to know what people think the percentage of time the flag is found on the side of the opponent's Marshal? In my experience it's a majority of the time though I'm not sure how much of one.

Someone made a very detailed study of this .There was thread with the % .Maybe someone can remember it.

 

Think it was about 65%

Most of the games I canĀ“t find the flag. But looking at the last defence line you get some spots. I would say 75% for the Marshall flag defence and 55% placed for opponents right side. 


I believe that whatever doesn't defeat you on Stratego, simply makes you.. immortal.

I have observed that about 70 percent of the time the flag is on the same side as the Marshal. The other 30, of course, is on the side with the general.

And what about the cases flag, marshal and general are all on the same side? 0%? ;p

Almost never for me. Only happen one time in my 300-400 ranked games. When you calculate this, it comes to about 0.33-0.25% With those numbers, for me it's not really worth putting in the data.
