DOS - 1990
Description of Stratego
1990 saw the release of Stratego on the DOS system. A strategy game, created by MindSpan and distributed by Accolade, Inc.. If you like board / party game, turn-based, licensed title, download, install and enjoy Stratego!
Solid computer version of Milton Bradley's classic board game Stratego. This PC conversion of the Macintosh game was done by MindSpan, and it was the only non-sport game they ever developed. Hasbro released the second computer version of the board game in late 1999, but it has no relationship to this Accolade release. For those who are not familiar with the board game, here is the basic premise: Stratego is perhaps best described as the "realistic, modern military" version of Chess. Each player is allotted an "army" of 40 playing pieces at the beginning of the game, including a Marshal, Captains, Sergeants, Scouts, Bombs, and a Flag. Each piece, similar to Chess, follows its own movement rules. Unlike Chess, success of "attack" is determined by the pieces' ranks, not whether that attack is valid. So a Marshal can remove a General, a General can remove a Colonel, and so on. When equal ranks are struck, both pieces are removed from the board. The game ends when either player strikes his/her opponent's Flag (which cannot be moved). Timing is crucial in the game, and "special" pieces such as the Miners and Spy can tip the scale very quickly. With good graphics (with several board backgrounds to choose from), and a user-friendly interface, this PC version does justice to the original board game, although too bad the AI is too easy to beat. Recommended for all fans of tabletop war/strategy games, ane be sure to check Ed's Stratego Page below for the game rules, and click here to read Ken McLeod's (original designer) story of the computer game project.

What you need to do to get around the code prompt is run STRATINC.COM rather than STRATEGO.EXE (it stumped me too till I saw this on another site)
I'm running it under D-Fend Reloaded 1.36 and it's running perfectly :)

You can't play this game without the codewheel, and no, it won't just accept anything.
What a waste of time.

One of the trade rags pitted the Accolade version against the Hasbro version, and the AI in the Accolade version beat the Hasbro one 8 games out of 10.
