An interesting family of games, probably derived from chess. Including Stratego, L'Attaque, Generals, Luzhanqi, Doushouqi, and a few others. These games have many things in common: a simple orthoganal move, a goal of reaching a certain (usually stationary) piece or place (the "flag"), usually water or mountains as barriers, and a pecking order of strong vs. weak pieces. Evolving in Asia and Europe/America at the same time, the exact line of development of these closely related games is a tantalizing mystery! - AncientChess.com
