For some of you out there, this post will remind you of an old board game called Stratego. You’re probably the same group of people that remember televisions weren’t always in color, and telephones actually used to have little bells inside them. I’m serious! Bells!

I had the same problem as Seto Kaiba. I was on the level with the two leaders and when they were the only things left the game froze and then said you have been defeated when i still had a lot of pieces left.

You probably had a bell phone. You wouldn't have seen them unless you opened it up, but the ringers in the old rotary dial phones were two small bells with a mallet in between them that would hammer back and forth.

A much more pleasant sound than a Lil Wayne ringtone if you ask me.

I played Stratego a lot when I was a kid, and I definitely remember black and white television. But I never had a bell-phone.

Now let's try that game.

WTF?! Game doesn't cheat? Then how in the world did it say I failed when I beat every piece on the board except the two leaders? They were the only things left and I still had enforcers and assasins. >_

Ehh... seems a bit boring. Fairly fun the first time, but it doesn't really vary game play wise level after level. I could think of a lot of ways to make it more interesting.
