I will try, but I'm bad at crosswords. 


I used to play against a few drunken idiots in College and University. I just recently discovered this game online, playing my first matches against real-world opponents. After 100 games, I'm now one of the top 10 players in the world.

Will this one hour coaching be on an elementary Stratego level or the best of what the headmaster has to offer? Full transparency in your answer would be appreciated.

Depends on the winner. Some wouldn't pass the elementary school level based on attitude alone :).

So if someone already knows how to play pretty well they get a master lesson?

I've received some very good crossword puzzles so far. Of course people manage to find multiple words that fit in perfectly but aren't correct. I may give a hint or two regarding those words later :).

 

Hint for those who need some inspiration click me!

 

in case multiple words can be correct, try to pick those that are most common, or the opposite, total lack of on here.

Some of the answers seemed to be inspired by current events.

 

A very nice initiative though to have a puzzle and a chance to win this skill based session.
