A lot of people, me included, look back on the Stratego board game quite fondly. For many of us, it served as a cool introduction to "strategic" gaming. But an introductory role and nothing more seemed, in my mind at least, to be what it's best suited for. After all, it's fairly rudimentary as far as thinking man's material goes, bearing greater resemblance to Memory than to Risk. Way back when, it was cool to command an army consisting of several different types of soldiers, but nostalgia and the neatness of premise I perceived in my younger days were not going to make the PCE game work for me now. And when I powered it up and got a glimpse of its simplistic graphics, I was about ready to write the effort off.
