For your first immunity challenge, you will be playing a variant of Stratego, Race to the Back Row.

Rules:

Matches must be played as unranked (friendly) 40-piece match ups.
A player wins if:

  • He or she captures his or her opponent's flag
  • His or her opponent has no movable pieces
  • His or her opponent surrenders
  • At the end of the player's turn he a piece place in his opponent's back row
  • Players must also report if the match ends in a tie.

The back row is defined as the top row on the board, A10 to J10 using a grid format. A players own back row is squares A1 through J1. The following diagram displays back rows from red's perspective.

Attacking a piece in the back row does not count as reaching the back row. The player's piece must occupy a spot in the back row at the end of his or her turn.

Players should upload a screenshot of their victory or screenshot of the game board with one of their pieces in the back row.

Honesty is expected from all players. However, if a player's opponent captures the player's piece that reaches the back row before the player can take a screenshot, then the player can upload an image with the arrow displaying their opponent's previous move.

The match ups are as follows:

Nortrom vs Morx (2 - 0)
TheOptician vs Unladen Swallow (0 - 2)
Master Mind vs maxroelofs (0 - 2)
texaspete09 vs steelers (0 - 2)
Henry Domerkant vs Napoleon 1er (0 - 2)
Sgt. Blkdog vs Fairway
General Rascal vs Fks (0 - 2)
damon13 vs Kambia (2 - 0)


This challenge runs through Sunday, May 13. Refer to sections 5 and 6 of the General Rules (http://forum.strateg...o-series-rules/) for arranging your game.

I will use my discretion on extensions and awarding wins if a match cannot be played.

Please use this thread to ask questions and arrange your matches.

I assume a scout doesn't count for a piece that is allowed to get to the back rank?

Hi General Rascal I look forward to our game, I can play usually from 18:00 GMT onwards so whatever is your best time, Let me know and I will try to accommodate :)

From what I understand, I can win by moving a scout to my opponents back row, regardless of whether he takes it on the next turn or not?

Sgt.Blkdog, when do you suggest we play?

WINNER of the first ever Astros Stratego Series!  :D

Maybe it's addressed somewhere and I missed it, but what happens if the challenge ends in a 4-4 tie?

Coin flip. Or if there is time, I'll have the captains play. I'm open to other suggestions as to how to handle it.

What about adding the duration of all 4 games won for each team and this team with shortest total time to win gets the victory?

It wouldn't be fair to create a rule like that after games have been played this round. I will consider it for future rounds though.
