See this text? It's a gratuitous waste of GeekGold.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

A very clever little strategy game, where the value of your pieces is hidden from the opponent. The bigger piece always takes the smaller one, except that the smallest piece can take the biggest one. Great game - I just wish the board were a little bigger and one could set traps or landmines for the opponent to find!

I have to say, I don`t see any future in games about some war. We have the 20th century now for almost a decade and haven`t seen any mentionable war! So, come on, - be a bit more realistic and look for other themes.

1908 AD

From here:

Quote:
In its present form Stratego appeared in Europe before World War I as a game called L'Attaque. Thierry Depaulis writes on "Ed's Stratego Site":

"It was in fact designed by a lady, Mademoiselle Hermance Edan, who filed a patent for a 'jeu de bataille avec pièces mobiles sur damier' (a battle game with mobile pieces on a gameboard) on 11-26-1908. The patent was released by the French Patent Office in 1909 (patent #396.795 [5]). Hermance Edan had given no name to her game but a French manufacturer named "Au Jeu Retrouvé" was selling the game as L'Attaque as early as 1910... "

The edition pictured here of this Stratego variant shows a river across the board with bridges. Other editions were more abstract, but also used water areas to limit crossings of the centre of the board.

I picked this one up on eBay after doing some research on game history. Mine is similar to the one in the photo, but older (1920s?, 1930s?). It's exactly the same game as Stratego, which I already have, so it's not going to get played. Aside from this I have a number of antique and/or traditional games that are mostly just display pieces.

This game predates both Stratego (direct reference) and the Dawn Patrol type games. It was released in 1909, before World War I!
