    Hello,

    I was wondering if anybody out there has ever heard of a board game called "Strategy". There is no name on the board itself as to the maker of this game. I only have the board and the game tokens and no instructions and was wondering if anybody had heard of this game and have instructions?

    This may be a little rough but I hope it helps:
    The game tokens have pictures of either a plane, ship of soldier.
    The game board has a yellow island in the middle of it and red land to the left and right. At the top and bottom of the game board is water.
    The islands and water have circles on them all connected together with
    lines.
    To the left and right the words Army and Airforce are written in the circles and at the top and bottom the word Navel are written in the circles.

    Thanks for any advise,

    D.

    I have exactly what you are looking for that is if you are still looking. I played the game as a child and I had it out this weekend playing with my grandchildren. I even have the instructions which I have copied and I could post to you if you wish.
    It was a great game that certainly needed some "strategy" !

    You replied to a post that is _thirteen years_ old. Why does Google
    even allow that?

    I had this as a kid, still have the board but no tokens. From memory tokens moved one jump at a time soldiers could only move on land, aircraft moved anywhere and ships only on the sea. Troops could be moved one at atime onto ships. The object was to
    capture the island in the middle by jumping (taking off the board) all the opposition tokens.
    That's all I remember.

    We used to play 'Strategy' as kids. You moved your armies around the world map to build strong points and invasions. Whoever conquered the world won the game. It was my fathers game that he played as a kid, so circa 1940's.

    there's a BBG entry for it

    ...I wrote, and then I realized that the original poster asked the
    question in 2002.
    Uhm...
