Last weekend, 25 year-old IT student Vincent de Boer from Delft, South Holland won the World Championship Stratego, which was held in the Belgian town of Edegem. This is his third win, as he also won in 2003 and 2004. A total of 44 people from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, England, the Czech Republic and the United States participated in the event.

According to Wikipedia, the modern version of Stratego was originally published in the Netherlands, which would explain why the Dutch have apparently always won the championship, the Dutch Stratego Association explains.

On a more personal note, I found a completely new game of Stratego on the street in Zandvoort on Queen’s Day, left by children. I’m still very happy about that.
