Compete against the Computer Stratego World Champion! Select among hundreds of popular game options, like Aggression and One-time Bombs. Create your own setups using the convenient drag-and-drop editor, or choose from Probe's database of 100,000 setups. Undo and redo moves to explore alternate endings. Save games to resume later, and play back logs of completed games. Design your own custom piece sets, game boards and backgrounds.

Probe makes it easy for beginners to learn. Tutorials explain the rules, describe how to create setups and provide tips for play. During the game, Probe can help you keep track of the pieces that have moved and the ranks of pieces that have been revealed. Probe can even help you select your next move.

For advanced players, Probe provides a realistic tournament environment. Probe enforces the ISF Two-Squares Rule and More-Squares Rule, and offers four options to prevent annoying chases and deadlocks. Probe is expert at protecting its Flag, and knows how to search out and capture your Flag, or win by attrition. Probe is by far the most lifelike Stratego computer opponent you can play.

Probe also offers two exciting variants: Enhanced and Blitz. Enhanced is played on a larger board with Power Squares that allow pieces to move directly from lane to lane. Captains can move diagonally, Lieutenants can jump over adjacent pieces and Sergeants can cross the lakes directly. Enhanced is a dynamic game with free piece movement and many attack combinations. Blitz is played on the standard board and lets you choose the piece set for variants such as Barrage.

This download is the free trial version of Probe. The full version can be purchased for around $19.95 USD.
