Stratego is available now on Facebook and Stratego.com for free, and on iPad for $6.99, this version of Stratego allows players to do battle across devices. Of course, the classic 40-on-40-piece game is present and accounted for, but the folks at Keesing have included a speedier 10-piece blitzkrieg mode for those sessions played on the go.
During a hands-on preview of the game, Dennis Maas of Keesing showed what a match between an iPad player and someone on Stratego.com looked like. Complete with real-time chat, leaderboards and a unified interface, Stratego seems like a true one-to-one experience between devices.
Granted, being free-to-play (in most places), Keesing plans to put dinner on the table through vanity and power-up purchases in Stratego. And if you're worried about players paying their way to winning, Maas promises that purist players will have their own set of matchmaking tools. If you're ready to take your first turn of Stratego in the social age, just click away.
