What is the point of this post? Hopefully not just to put down another player...

 

There are many ways to win being 2 colonels down... It depends on the board position and knowledge gained for those 2 colonels.


How can I help you?

Satan has done it too I've heard.  I was once down a Col, two majors, two captains and won by flag capture when my Marshall sneaked past his.  It's not always about the material but, the position and knowing where to move your remaining forces.

I was up two cols and two captains against Satan and I still lost (with a misclick, not because of his powermoves) and if I didn't have that misclick, I would have got a tie at least (my flag was loose but he had way more lowbees and scouts than me so I couldn't kill him anyway nor abandon my flag).

And another time I was up four captains against Satan and then I made some terrible play which gave him the win.

It's all about position.  Two or three ranks down doesn't say anything,.....it will be more difficult but it's still possible.

It's the way you enter enemy ground. SATAN beat me by comming closer and closer with pieces. When you lost all your scouts. Sergants and lieitanents will be the scouts. (If you don't wanna loos your captains and majors). But you must just use that to get all the lower pieces. Knowing were the marshall is. Keeping your marshall behind and use it later. 


I believe that whatever doesn't defeat you on Stratego, simply makes you.. immortal.

You mean Yuckfou?  Yes, that's one of my silver accounts indeed.

What's the matter? You couldn't handle my frustration talk when I was hugely in front and still screwed it?

Not used to much then :)

yes strobe I found the marshall with a lute and the general with a miner, on his side of the board. Then took the next 6 scouts (without swapping any), ate all probing sergeants and lutes. His mistake was not using majors to find the marshall or general. then when he feared swapping generals because the 2nd piece of mine nearby he thought was a miner (it was a sarge), he lottoed out his  colonel into a bomb because the miner near it was running around my lake he knew he could not take it, but he still needed to swap generals then he could of used the 3/4 to trap my remaining pieces, big mistake as miner got closer to bombs before major was anywhere near
