DESCRIPTION
        Allows people to play Stratego, a popular board game, over a
        serial connection.  Gameplay can take place over a null modem
        connection, Modem, or while logged onto a remote host using
        Internet Relay Chat, talk, or write.  The program is unique in
        that it uses a robust packet sending algorithm which transmits
        and receives packets using standard printable characters, and
        filters out screen escape codes.  During game play, messages
        may be sent, and optionally played through the SPEAK: device. 
        Be sure to skim the documentation before trying the program.

        New Features added to this version:
                - Sound effects.
                - CRC Error detection.
                - Save game and recover after disconnections.
                - Some minor problems have been fixed.

DISTRIBUTABILITY
        May be distributed freely.  I would be honored to have this
        placed on a Fish Disk.  The program may not be sold to make
        a profit.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS
        Runs on any OS.  Uses the SPEAK: device, but this is not a
        requirement.

        Found on aminet sites such as ftp.cdrom.com (192.216.191.11)
