I played Stratego one summer in summmer camp. The one I was exposed to was the electronic version where when two pieces clashed you placed them in a slot and the built in computer would tell you which piece won. That way, you never actually knew what piece defeated your piece and had to deduce what enemy piece that was.
I haven't played since then but I almost bought the collectible version where you played fantasy type groups such as fielding an undead army.
That sounds like a very interesting twist to the game.
Ive heard bad things about the fantasy version, but you can get it very cheap.
