I've noticed many of the versions posted here don't have the numbers on the pieces themselves. I feel like that would make it difficult to play with, especially against someone who is not too familiar with the game.
I am looking for a version to buy, and I like some of these because they look like they would be very resistant to tipping over, but I am not sure about them.

 

i like my nostalgia (tan wooden box set) ...it has american numbers. with most sets, tipping pieces will occur...what i did was collect 80 2 liter bottle caps and i put the pieces in those preventing any possible tipping or domino effects to occur. plus they are easy to slide that way. also, when playing the memory version (not remain visible) i throw empty 22mm bullet shells in the bottle caps to represent pieces that my opponent has seen or may be tracking. those "seen shells" would be considered a game aid that we both agreed upon.

 

one thing i noticed with my set though (with the red army)....with really good lighting, you could actually see through the pieces in order to detect bombs (circlish transparent shadow)....that was an easy fix...i just colored all the backs with a black permanent marker .


Hmm....i wonder where that marshal went

The Jumbo Original version with the infiltrator piece in the game box is the best one to buy in my opinion.

I have this one too, but I was very surprised you have to 'sticker' all pieces yourself.  In my opinion Jumbo 'deliveres' poor service for that price (Euro 35-40). I don't like it when the pictures are not right placed on the pieces and that is the risk here.

So, next time do it by production of the pieces please!

 

                                                                                                                                             Lucky

 


The secret of happiness is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you should do.

Lucky you do have a point.  It would be nice if the stickers were already placed for you, but it is what it is.  Once you have put all your stickers on, in my opinion this is the best set that I have seen for the Euro version.

Yo, this guy rocks,...the infiltrator!

It's the weakest piece but damn, this dude's got a killing flavour!

If you feel threatened, you can spare yourself the unwilling labour

to charge with the marsh and kill a major

cuz' thanks to the infiltrator, this chillin' player

who pretends to be the saviour...

it's now possible to fokkin' guess his hidden neighbour! :D

 

It's great stuff...

cuz' this will make the games tough

and right now it's even harder for an insane bluff!

In rank this mate suks,

this bitsj is considered as a waste but

with his face up and his straight guts

he could slay buts

and that's when you gain much!

Your opponent is dying, his faith's fukked!

He thought to use his major as a bate but...

he didn't realize that HE was the bate, FUK! :D

Compare it to poker,...

he's got quad aces and that's CRAZY

but you've got the straight flush, you've got the plain NUTS! :D

 

So yeah, it's a nice piece to play with it.

Cuz' in the game,..it might be the great trick! ;)


I love the smell of Napalm in the morning

Hi Everbody,

 

I'm looking for some help and i hope you are the one.

 

My mother in law asked me to sell some things for her. Normally it is easy to find out the value of something. In this case i find it difficult. Normally i would accept any offer that's satisfy me, but because it is for my mother in law it is different.

 

I have the Royal Stratego. Google sent me to this forum and definitely here are the experts.

 

Can anybody tell something about this edition? Thanx.

 

Rene

The Royal stratego to 1974 was produced in a very small amount! Among fanciers of old games it's priceless! I bought mine with good luck on ebay! It is certainly one of the greatest games rarities Worldwide!

Yeah, my mistake !

 

311qvfb.jpg

 

so it says you can "attack an enemy playing piece from one or two spaces away"...would that mean you could be next to your opponents scout and infiltrate/attack the marshal thats hiding behide it? (2 spaces away) in other words guess/attack/infiltrate over a piece? 

from the rule description it doesnt sound like thats illegal to do.


Hmm....i wonder where that marshal went
