Stratego is a military boardgame in which the aim is to capture an enemy's flag. Combat is simple one-on-one - the piece with a higher score wins the square, and the other piece is removed. This version contains the basic game (Stratego Classic), plus four new interpretations - Ultimate Lightning, Ultimate Campaign, Alliance Lightning and Alliance Campaign.
