In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

Command an Army, Outmaneuver Generals Worldwide with Digital Stratego

Fans of classic board game Stratego can now revel in their battlefield cunningness as Keesing Games brings the game into the digital era with today’s launch of Stratego as a free-to-play online game and paid mobile app for iPad. Developed and published by Keesing Games, a Dutch developer renowned for the game portal, the officially licensed version of the international board game from Royal Jumbo is available to play now on Facebook, iPad, at and partner sites.

Stratego is a battle of tactics where calculating generals command an army using careful strategy and cunning deception when deploying troops, setting up defenses on the battlefield and attacking to break through enemy lines to capture the flag for victory. Strategists can outwit and outplay other players from around the world with cross-platform play.

In this modern version of the Stratego classic, fans will discover:

  • The Board Game… but DigitalStratego was the board game of choice for generations of armchair generals. The digital version preserves all the details that made the game an instant classic, but now strategy aficionados can play anytime, anywhere.
  • Cross-Platform Play for World Domination – Take on generals around the world with online multiplayer gameplay. The web, Facebook and iPad versions of Stratego are cross-compatible, so Sun Tzu working at a computer can still challenge Napoleon during his commute to work on a train.
  • Customization – No longer is limited time an issue as strategy fans can play challengers in a full 40-piece game or a blitzkrieg 10-piece game. In addition, Stratego offers a bevy of customizable features, such as game pieces and maps.
  • Capture the Flag – The only way for battle commanders to win is by leaving a trail of bodies behind as they hack through enemy lines to uncover the secret enemy flag, all the while avoiding mines, spies and the enemy field marshal.

Stratego transports the classic strategy game into the digital era with enriched web and mobile versions,” said Dennis Maas, commercial manager, Keesing Games. “Fans of the original board game will experience the same great game they love, but now with modern-day features that they can play anywhere.”

Stratego is available for $6.99 from the App Store on iPad or for free on Facebook or at

Members of the press can download assets, including a tutorial trailer and screenshots, by visiting the Keesing Games GamesPress page.
