This was the set I had (btw I think its 1987 Morx). I was sad to see it go as its a beautiful set, but at the same time I was glad it was going to some enthusiastic young players. I have resolved that one day I will advertise stratego more here and try to get some more Australian players.

Just looked through 10 pages of Stratego Boards on EBay to find this but to no avail :( Do you remember where you got this? I really like it!

I got mine on ebay when I first looked, didn't realise at the time though that they can be hard to find so I think I just got lucky.

Is there a certain character trait I can put in search bar to help find it?

This set is not too uncommon in The Netherlands. Its not super available but definitely doable to get it.

 

I think I got one set of the local ebay (www.marktplaats.nl) but am not sure now. I think I bought 3 different Stratego boards at a time from one person, including this board, because we were getting more to host tournaments in various countries.

 

Edit: there is one on www.marktplaats.nl

@fks, I think it is most commonly bought as "Stratego Original 1987"

In an ancient topic on stratego sets, Spece mentions buying his on EBay.

20 Stratego Transformers

 

This is one of these mint games I was talking about earlier. Nicely wrapped in the plastic you will not hear me tell any stories about what is inside the box. It could be filled with gold bars, but it is more likely that it contains the items as shown on the picture of the back of the box

 

The battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons must appeal to most readers of other parts of the forum. There is an important question asked on the back of the box:" Which army will prevail in this battle of galactic proportions?"

 

Pieces material:standing gates

Piece Color:red and blue

Board: hard carton

Outside box: Red

Year made: ?

Morx your collection is amazing ! Thank you again for giving us a look at it. I also appreciate your response to my comment on set 18. Cultural differences can be confusing(for me) and you did fine job understanding what I was getting at. You also added a few differences that I was unaware of-awesome- I continue to learn something new everyday here.

21 Original Stratego

 

I already mentioned the tournament games. This is the first of those models. This board has everything a modern game should have: a good graveyard, a divider screen, a nice board and good pieces.

 

Note that the content of the pieces can be swapped, they are seperate cartons. Many a competitive game has been played on this type of boards.

 

 

Pieces material:standing towers with carton inlay

Piece Color:red and blue

Board: hard carton

Outside box: Red

23 Mini Stratego

 

As far as I know this is the oldest of the miniature games. There are many versions of Stratego that use similar pieces. For instance number 2, Salvo Stratego uses those pieces.

 

The board is a miniature version of a board we already saw many times.

 

Pieces material:Stick in on round black feet

Piece Color:red and blue

Board: green

Outside box: Purple/dark blue

24 Stratego Deluxe

 

This is one of those slightly more rare boards. What suprised me when I opened the box, is that the pieces are Red and White. I think there is also a version of Stratego Deluxe with Black and White pieces, but I don't have it here in one of my cupboards.

 

I do have one other game though with this white board, its called Royal Stratego and it is one of the nicest ones in my collection.

It will be posted at some point .

 

In the Deluxe box you can see a red and blue "marshall staff" that can be used for doing the lottery of who has red and who has blue.

 

 

Pieces material:Standing gates

Piece Color:red and blue

Board: White

Outside box: White

Year made: about 1970
