The description of the widegame stratego was very good.
Our troop often play a similar game called Frontiers.
You divide the boys in to teams. Each team is given a small "home base".
In the "home base" each team is given 10 - 15 tokens (flags).
The playing field is divided in to parts with a home base on each.
(The game is best played in a area with trees and bushes).
The goal of the game is to sneak into the other teams area and capture
a token. If someone from the other team is being able to tag you on
thier side of the field you are taken as a prisoner to thier "home base".
Now when a member of your own team reaches the "homes base" he is able to free
you insteed of taking a token.
If you have a token or a "free" prisoner you are free to go back to your own hom
The game last for a specified time and the team with the most tokens wins.
I hope this description is understandable, if not feel free to mail me
