Bored with your board games? This classic game of strategy has been around a while, but it delivers endless challenges to keep young minds fresh and coming back for more. In Stratego, two armies go head-to-head to determine dominance, but these are no ordinary soldiers. Mages, beast riders and wolf scouts are just some of the magical creatures that battle it out. Each piece has its own unique powers, but there's a catch: you don't know the identity of your opponent's pieces, and must rely on trial, error, and memory to control the board. A game with unending variations and serious brain stimulation, Stratego is a keeper. (Hasbro, $58.00)
