Did he take the full time to set up ?

If you forget and don't do it in time you get a random set up.

Though I have played this guy 3 times and he made inexplicable moves in every game.

Why are you playing Stratego in Dutch if you are American?

 

Use www.stratego.com/en/play to play in English

I play in Dutch. I set it to English a couple of times but it just reverted to Dutch again.

It wouldn't matter if it was Chinese really as what's happening is clear.

He did not take the full time to setup, he was ready at about the 3 minute mark.

 

I play in Dutch because the page always loads for me in Dutch and I don't feel like changing the web address or clicking the flag, which reloads the page, every time I load the site.

If you google stratego.com you will see 2 links with /play. One of the 2 is en/play. Select this one and memorize it in your favorites. Next time you open stratego.com from there you get the english version first.

If you don't know where you go ... you have a lot of chance to arrive elsewhere ...

Thanks for the advice but I already have the Dutch version bookmarked and I couldn't care less what language I play in.

You're rated 880 and got an opponent who puts his flag in the front row?  Presumably,

your opponent is also an advanced player.  He couldn't get to platinum doing that.

 

I only once played an opponent who did that, and it took me well over 100 moves to

get that flag - I ignored it, figuring it was a bomb.  Eventually, I wanted  to

use that column, and needed to make sure that's not a marsh or gen sitting there.   If she fiercely defends it,  which she did, that's a sign something's up.  Sir Richard

Hey Pete, since you could care less; i.e., you do care, you should probably change it!  B)

I must emphatically disagree with displaying my setup. To post it on the forum and let others know does not make sense to me. I enjoyed playing with my flag in the front and can no longer do so. I did play someone that had the flag there and did not find it until the end of the game. I would like to hear other comments
