I was browsing around Amazon's Black Friday deals and I clicked on the "War and Strategy" category in games. The first game listed was Candy Land: Disney Princess Edition. Strange, considering Candy Land is one of the few games I can think of that has absolutely zero strategy.

P.S. The item description describes it as "100% toy." Not sure what that means.

I think that 100% toy means it doesn't contain any candy, or princesses. But as for the listing under Strategy, I'm perplexed as well.

It is a pure strategy game. Someone who knows how to stack the deck will beat someone who doesn't know how to stack the deck, 100% of the time.

Maybe the Disney Princess edition adds layers of strategy (and war, apparently) that base Candy Land was lacking.
