    War & Peace

    The intensity of combat. The serenity of stones. Two diverse philosophies of gameplay that share a common bond - superlative strategy.

    Stratego captures all the thrill of the classic battlefield board game from Milton Bradley. Now, there are more options, choices and features. Deploy your army, plan your advance, attack and capture the enemy flag. One match against the computer, and you'll see why Stratego is called "the greatest battlefield strategy game of all time."

    Ishido summons forth The Way of Stones and returns it to the world after thousands of years. This ancient game and beautiful puzzle recalls the depth of chess and the simplicity of Go. Call upon your deepest powers of concentration to match 72 stones on a board of 96 squares.

    Stratego and Ishido. The finest strategy games the world has ever known, brought together by quite an uncommon bond - Accolade.
