Barrage Stratego is played identical to the normal game, on the same classic, two-player board. The one difference is each player, instead of having forty pieces, has just eight, consisting of:
You are allowed to put these pieces on any square of your own normal 40-square start position. Something must be used as a shield to prevent your opponent from seeing where you put your pieces.
The player who captures his/her opponent's Flag wins. As with the normal game, a player not capable of moving a piece loses the game.
