STRATEGO!!! :frenchvive1:

Grew up on that game. I one time got away with putting my flag in the second row .... :frenchlol:

Anyone else have a good Stratego story? :frenchwink:

There is a Stratego app for the Iphone. Even has a Campaign feature. I use it when shopping with the spouse. She shops, I find a chair and play.

Avalon Hill's Tactics II was my first exposure to strategy games. Back in the 60's. I was 9 or 10 and both my older brothers played.

My first AH game was Luftwaffe. I didnt understand it right away so it sat on the shelf. Play the big four WW2 AH games - Afrika Korps, Stalingrad, D-Day and Bulge.

I got the free Stratego ap on my Android device from Hasbro but what is funny about it ... my own pieces remain hidden and I dont see any setting to reveal them other than to click on them one by one! Go figure.

Looking to get a better ap for Stratego .. one that shows me my own pieces.

I have a couple of the Panzer Campaigns aps on my Android and actually enjoy playing them now and then.

The Nap Battles series by JTS is some ways off but am hoping to see it eventually.

I am teaching my 7 year old son Stratego. He likes it and is starting to get some of the strategy to it..

Another oldie, but goodie is RISK. Available for IPAD, etc and (probably) for Android.

Risk has a huge following online ... I was a member of a website where you could play Risk with other folks. It was terribly cutthroat but sometimes you could find cooperative players.

My first "wargame" I played with our family.

Dad loved "Dogfight" one of the American Heritage games. We also had the Broadsides and the ACW game in that series. A friend of mine owned the Hit the Beach game and I enjoyed playing that one as well.

I sent in for a island wargame - found out about it via a box top label. The map was plastic - so were the pieces. Forget the name of it but again, the idea was to take the island.

I also played "Battleship" to death too ;) ... my brother and I sat out in his camper in the front drive and played a couple of games together one memorable Christmas. Great place for brothers to left alone for an important naval operation! :frenchcool1:
