Project Description

Design a game by upgrading/modifying the classic "Stratego"

You may want to do the bulk of this project before watching the third video, which shows some of my modifications to Stratego.

The first two videos describe what Stratego is and what might be seen as good or bad about it.

Your task is to design (and playgtest, of course) a game based more-or-less on Stratego.  Post the result.  That result can include photos, a description, even an entire ruleset.

Some people worry that their ideas will be stolen by others.  This almost never happens.  Game ideas are a penny a dozen, like buttholes everyone has them, and most of them stink.  If anything is stolen, it's an entire game that has been published and well-received.  Nonetheless, if you're worried about this, you might describe your game generally rather than post actual rules.
