(A message from the Founder and President of The Stratego Academy.)

Welcome to the Stratego Academy!

The Site is not officially open yet and therefore our website at "StrategoAcademy.com" is not active yet.

Before we officially open the Academy, we are doing a series of test classes which allows us to offer lessons and coaching at vastly reduced prices, in exchange for vital customer feedback about our courses.

This page is ONLY available through the link which was contained within your e-mail as this is only a limited offer available to a select few players.

(Now linked from the Metaforge website and open to all, but hurry as numbers are limited)

About the Academy

Our primary objective is to enable the student to achieve levels of performance to a degree that may not have been possible if left to his/her own endeavours. We achieve this by providing instruction and explanation, demonstrating, observing, analysing and providing feedback on all Stratego game related topics.

In addition to learning the game up to Foundation level, we also provide the student with a 1 year subscription at the Metaforge Web Stratego gaming site.

Our Stratego coach will be instructor, assessor, friend, mentor, demonstrator, advisor, supporter, fact finder, motivator, counsellor, organiser, planner and the Fountain of all Knowledge.

The Faculty’s Courses are designed to provide you with a comprehensive and thorough training in Stratego and to provide the skills you will need in order to play Stratego competitively at the highest level. Our aim is to help you achieve your potential to become a skilled tournament level Stratego player.
