Stratego is a 2 player board game with 40 pieces per side on a 10×10 square board. The objective of the game is to either find and capture the opponent's Flag or to capture so many of the opponent's pieces that he/she cannot make any further moves. There are also variants with 20 and 10 pieces with the same overall rules but designed for faster play.

Stratego is a 2 player board game with 40 pieces per side on a 10×10 square board. The objective of the game is to either find and capture the opponent's Flag or to capture so many of the opponent's pieces that he/she cannot make any further moves. Each collision of 2 pieces results in the inferior ranked piece being removed from play. Players cannot see the ranks of each other's pieces, so disinformation and discovery are important elements of the game.

There are several different versions of the game, most of which are called by exactly the same name: Stratego. A 20 piece and 10 piece version of the game also exist and are intended for a faster game.
