Your opponent’s threatening fortress looms before you. It’s now or never. The enemy flag lies hidden somewhere in this fortress.
But beware, your opponent has fashioned the fortress into a treacherous maze. The enemy lurks behind every wall and door.
You know the enemy has no mercy. But you also know you must press on. Because you have a clear goal; to conquer your opponent’s flag.
Stratego Fortress can be played in two versions; the introductory game with simple rules and a short game duration (around 20 minutes),
or the main version. The main version is a real challenge using all the playing pieces and all the obstacles (around 45 minutes).
Players are advised to try the introduction game a few times before starting on the main version.
Both players receive a fortress (a 3-D cross corner section of a castle) and everything they need to build a maze.
While in the end the maze you build must lead to your flag, it must be as difficult as possible to find.
But there is one important condition; it must be possible to reach your flag.
The players then enter their opponent’s fortress with a playing piece to search for their opponent’s flag.
The first player to capture his or her opponent’s flag in this manner is the winner.
