65 years of Stratego

The forerunner of today’s game was devised during World War II by Jewish hider Jacques Johan Mogendorff. Because his cardboard playing pieces were easily damaged and therefore easier to identify, the game was not a success at the time. He approached publisher Jumbo, which successfully marketed the game with wooden pieces and equipped with uniforms in 1958. The now iconic uniforms depicted on the playing pieces were designed by Frans Smits, Holland’s most famous designer of military uniforms and emblems.
