Re: [Unity_Games] Stratego Legends
- a lot of chrome that added nothing to the basic game except time-consuming
looking up of what this and that piece did. i liked the old stratego, but
find it very limited. ymmv.

"There is great chaos under heaven, and the situation is excellent."
- I can see having that reaction on first play, especially if you just used
one starter set. You can actually get a lot of synergy going between the
pieces after you've bought two or three sets and done a bit of trading
(e.g., Elf army, Fungi army, etc.) And, of course, at that point you're not
looking much up at all.
I would imagine it's like the difference between two newbies sitting down to
play Magic for the first time (including all of the painful rules lookups)
and two non-newbies sitting down to play Magic with decks they've
constructed, already knowing what all of their cards do.
Yeah, there's definitely a Magic-esque element to the game, re army
construction (though thankfully there aren't nearly as many pieces as there
are cards in Magic) -- if you don't like that, or haven't had the
opportunity to actually *construct* an army, then it's not the game for you.
As it is, though, I don't know you've seen all the possibilities yet.
