Tinka and I were trying to figure out a board game to get during "shelter at home," and I remembered that I used to enjoy a board game called Stratego.

Monopoly is fun with a group, but I really don't think it is fun with only two players.

Who remembers Stratego?

Who still plays Stratego?

Played it, loved it...will be teaching it to my daughter soon. We play a lot of Monopoly, she loves it and it is good for her math skills (she is 7) because she always wants to be the banker!

The box cover you show must be a newer version. The original pieces were painted blocks of wood without buttresses.

The red pieces with embossed gold represent Conrad-Johnson, the blue with silver are Audio Research.
That would be a REALLY old version!

I had a friend that had first edition Risk, which also had painted wooden pieces.

Success! Tinka liked Stratego a lot! (It didn't hurt that it was invented by a Dutchman.)

I found it to be fun too! It is really a very good game. It hasn't lost anything with the passage of decades.

Still have my Stratego that I bought around 72. Great game, and have introduced this to my kids. Another game that we got into the mid 90s and played with the kids is Carcassonne. This is still being played and is engaging as you have can have multiple players.
