Object of the game
The player to capture the opponents wins the game.
Both players take one domino game. The bones are shuffled face down. Every player picks up 24 dominoes and set 4 apart. This introduces a slight element of chance. If a player does not have and , he reshuffles and redraws.
Both players put them on the three rows of the board closest to him in such a way that he can see the pips but the opponent can not. There are no engineers or bombs. The is both flag and marshall, theis the spy.
The game ends when the first has been beaten.
Strategies should be taken from Stratego rather than from ordinary dominoes. There is many important differences affecting initial setup and play.
First, there are no bombs. So hidding your behind bombs in a corner is impossible. Second, you have no in-depth defence. Ordinary Stratego has 4 lines, now you have only 3. Also, instead of 2 peaces which can beat your marshall, there are now eight. Last, consider carefully which peaces should defend and which are destined to attack.
None known. I haven't played this game myself, these rules are just an idea. As far as I know, this is the only Stratego variant with a difference between attack and defence strengths.
