Stratego is a board game for two players on a 10x10 square board. Each player controls 40 pieces representing individual officers and soldiers in an army.
The objective of the game is to find and capture the opponent's Flag, or to capture so many enemy pieces that the opponent cannot make any further moves.
Players cannot see the ranks of one another's pieces, so disinformation and discovery are important facets to gameplay.
Each player moves one piece per turn.
All movable pieces, with the exception of the Scout, may move only one step in a straight line vertically or horizontally.
Scouts can move any distance in a straight line.
If a piece is moved onto a square occupied by an opposing piece, their identities are revealed, the weaker piece is removed from the board, and the stronger piece is moved into the place formerly occupied by the weaker piece.
If the engaging pieces are of equal rank, they are both removed.<br... />
