Since the time man has been able to accurately record his events and accomplishments, history books have been filled with tales of conflict, war and battle. Historians speak fondly and admiringly of great war heros, and commanders, who’ve been able to steer their troops to victory and success. However, after you take a crack at the Funskool Stratego Original Board Game, history books will have to be amended, for a new master of battle strategy, you. Surely anyone with a curious, imaginative yet logical mind won’t be able to resist the challenge of controlling an army as commander-in-chief, in this logic and strategy based game of battle.
The Stratego Board Game challenges players to control the different ranks of their army, to break through the lines of their opponent’s and capture their flag. Use your sense of tact to deploy your troops in the appropriate areas while maintaining the codes of secrecy. However, as with any battle, you’ll have to be vigil for bombs, enemy spies trying to get your secrets and even an infiltrator hoping to cause some mayhem. The board game is ideal for children aged 8 years and above, or for anyone with a penchant for strategy based games. The game is intended for two players.
