before you even start: who owns the rights?

You don't want to run into the Risk/Axis&Allies trap.

thanks for your answer...
I don't know who owns the rights... wikipedia only talks about the publisher... but if I know how the game works can't I program it?? I mean, then we live in a really poor world...

sure, as long as the name does not resemble stratego, you don't mention stratego and the pieces look very different...

there were bazillions of risk games... and suddenly some years ago came the ban hammer....

Vassal (Linux friendly) has a Stratego Module.
