The Napoleon members want to thank Johnny van Geffen for his time and work he had when active as the chairman of the club. During the last meeting Johnny told us he though it was time for 'fresh blood'and new ideas. Since the founding of our club Johnny was the chairman now his place will be filled in by Luc Adriaansen. The organisation now looks like this: Luc Adriaansen [Chairman], Wim Verleijsdonk [Secr] and Peter Vissers [Treasure] Johnny, many thanks!

 

Everybody have a nice December month, stay healthy and have a Strategistic 2005!!

Cheers and see you soon,

Napoleon webmaster

November 9th

Fresh blood on the top of the National Stratego Championships in The Netherlands! Last weekend 52 qualified players battled for the Dutch Stratego titles in "Het Legermuseum, in Delft" Both the juniors and the seniors have got quite a surprising winner. New Kids On The Block?

In the junior tournament all eyes were focused on Napoleon member Roel Verleijsdonk (4 times World Champion, 3 times Dutch Champion) But Roel is looking forward to enter the senior tournaments. When not 100% concentrated other very strong players like Pim Niemeijer and Ricardo Kik are difficult / impossible to beat. Where Roel couldn't extend his Dutch title it was his younger brother Peter who ended up first after a thrilling tournament. Silver medal for Pim Niemeijer who just had a few Mbuch points less then Peter. Third place for Ricardo Kik (Ricardo was the only one who could beat Peter this day) The Napoleons did very well. Peter Verleijsdonk first, Collin Sikteoeboen's first appearence on a title tourney: 5th (!) Roel Verleijsdonk 6th, Bert Verleijsdonk 7th.

The seniors. SBN Chairman George Franka started furious with 5 wins in a row. But the last two rounds ended in a draw. Staying undefeated isn't enough...... George ended second over all. Napoleon members Johnny van Geffen third, and Wim Sikteoeboen (to many draws) 9th. The winner of the Dutch title 2004 won his first (senior) tournament ever! Improving his game as never been seen before in just a couple of years, the best player of The Netherlands is called Tim Slagboom. Tim lost one game vs George, but the won all others. Including games vs Roel Eefting, Tijs van Dijk and Vincent de Boer.

Congratiulations to all winners.

Results can be found here (seniors) and here (juniors).

 


 

October 16th

The 9th Napoleon tournament is behind us. It was a pity that so few players actually went to Helmond. With only 21 players our team can not be satisfied. The good news is that the juniors could play a full compitition. (8 players = 7 rounds) But that only leaves 13 senior players which (of course) is not enough to speak of a 'big' tournament.

* Juniors. After the 7 games three players had 5 wins, one draw and one lost. A three-way barrage must deceide who will take the gold, silver and bronze. Best junior after this long day: Pim Niemeijer , runner up: Roel Verleijsdonk. Third place for Ricardo Kik. Napoleon members Peter Verleijsdonk (4th) Collin Sikteoeboen (5th)

* Seniors. The members from 'Sister' Stratego Club: The Schnuffels aus Deutchland Klaus Matern and Mark Blockhaus arrived so the tourney could start  :-) Not that they were to late, but a Napoleon tournament without a Schnuffel would be impossible....Mark Blockhaus ended third over all, with 4 wins 2 lost games. Second place for Wim Sikteoeboen, 5 wins and one lost game versus tournament winner Luc Adriaansen.Other Napoleon members Johnny van Geffen (5th) and Peter Vissers (11th)

It was a nice tournament with thrilling games and sportive players. The location was (in my opinion) also good. But so few players... :-(    Mixed feelings take the overhand, next time we want to see more people! Big thanks to all who joined us at our 9th Napoleon tournament. Results can be found below.

Special for the Dutch readers of this site:

Historie Napoleon Open.

Oktober 2004. Herfst. Het wordt kouder buiten, de bladeren vallen en de regen valt met bakken uit de lucht. Ideaal weer om binnen een pot Stratego te spelen. Na vorige week het Schnuffel Open staat het komend weekend in Helmond het 9e Napoleon Open op het program; ook een klassieker op de
Stratego-kalender inmiddels. Het oudste toernooi van Nederland kent een mooi verleden, waar jong en oud al vele uurtjes plezier, spanning en strijd aan beleefd hebben. Kijk bijvoorbeeld eens naar het illuster gezelschap van winnaars in de acht toernooien tot nu toe; Sikteoeboen, Snelleman, Van Bodegom en De Boer. Allemaal topspelers, stuk voor stuk. Wim Sikteoeboen won zelfs drie keer, Wim Snelleman en Vincent de Boer mochten twee maal met de bloemen naar huis. Ook bij de junioren alleen maar 'bekende' namen die met de eerste prijs aan de haal gingen. De laatste drie jaar echter is het Roel Verleijsdonk, meervoudig wereld- en Nederlands kampioen bij de junioren, die
domineerde.

Deelnemers 9e Napoleon Open

Het Napoleon Open is het laatste toernooi waar men zich kan plaatsen voor het NK. Veel spelers zullen van die gelegenheid gebruik maken voor een laatste test hoe het met de vorm is. Een aantal hebben al laten weten dat zij present zullen zijn in Helmond. De titelverdediger, en regerend wereld- en Nederlands kampioen, Vincent de Boer zal proberen om voor de derde keer op rij te winnen. Ook de naam van Wim Sikteoeboen, vorige week nog winnaar van De Schnuffel Open in Düssldorf, staat op de deelnemerslijst. Uit Duitsland komen zeer zeker ook enkele goede spelers. Ook voor hen is het de laatste kans om zich voor te bereiden op hun nationaal kampioenschap, ook in november. Verder worden er ook vanuit België een delegatie verwacht, zeker na het goede optreden op het WK in hun eigen land.

Tot in Helmond!
 

 


 

October 3rd

Yesterday 2 cars full Napoleonmembers headed east to play the 5th Schnuffel Open. Stuck in a traffic jam in the Netherlands, driving over bike-pathes, taking detours, cruising way over 120 km/h on the German Autobahn we arrived in Düsseldorf. After shaking hands with all German (and Dutch) friends the tournament begon with 33 players. Jens Schulze complete the 34 players a bit later, his train was delayed due to a tragic accident. People from the Czech/German border, Danish/German border (Dieter and Steffen Annies preformed vey good!), Berlin, Rotterdam The Netherlands, gave 'acte de presence'  The brothers Roel, Peter and Bert had a difficult task: the was no junior tourney so they have to compete the seniors. Bert won once, Peter twice and Roel three times. Very good guys. Luc Adriaansen won four and lost twice which putted him 8th overall. Johnny did better. He stayed unbeaten and ended up 4th (4 wins and 2 draws) Wim Sikteoeboen was het best of the day and can call himself  '( In-)offizieller Stratego-Europameister' With 5 wins and one lost game Wim stayed in front of Andreas Weber, and Erik van den Berg. Both had 4 wins + 2 draws. After the traditional bottle Diebels we went home...

Thanks to the Schnuffels for organising this nice tourney. Hopefully we get such a strong playfield in Helmond next week as we organise the 9th Napoleon Open Tournament.

Result of the 5th Schnuffel below.  Pictures here.

September 11th

Upcomming tournaments. '5th Schnuffel Open' and '9th Napoleon Open'  The 5th Schnuffel Open will be organised by the Schnuffel team and takes place on October 2nd in Düsseldorf, Germany. [ All information you need here] The Napoleon Tournament is planned on October 16th in Helmond, The Netherlands.

More info can be found here (or can be asked by e-mail).

 


 

August 16th

The World Championships 2004 are behind us. Stratego Club Napoleon travelled with 6 players to Antwerp. Three in the junior tournament and three in the senior tournament. We can be very proud to tell that we ended up 1st, 5th and 6th at the juniors, and 3rd, 5th and 6th at the seniors!

Roel Verleijsdonk managed to take the title back home for the 4th time in a row! His brothers Bert and Peter also preformed very well (both 4 wins, 3 lost games) Roel lost only one game to Pim. Rotterdam's Pim Niemeijer couldn't beat Ricardo but ended up second. Third place for newcommer Alexis Julian from France. Out of the blue onto the podium. I met Julian in cyberspace (the internetsite of Gravon) and he, his father and some friends came to Antwerp.

In the senior section Wim Sikteoeboen had a bad start; first game lost. But after that mistake he only lost to the #1. The last game ended as a draw Wim became 6th. Johnny van Geffen let the victory in the 3rd round to Filip Sweagers (the same player who had beaten Wim in the first round) After that only Pavel Shilling from the Ukrraine could capture Johnny's flag. Pavel already had beaten the World Champion 2004 in the third round. Johnny: 6 wins, 1 draw and 2 lost games --> 5th place. Luc Adriaansen stayed unbeaten for the first 8 games (2nd and 7th round a draw) and played the last game against Ranking leader and defending World Champion Vincent de Boer.Winner would take the title. After a quick and furious battle Luc got the higher pieces but Vincent got a larger ammount of pieces and already discouvered 4 bombs... Luc's defence therefor wasn't able to stop Vincent from pushing towards the flag. Vincent de Boer won and extended his title. Luc became third. Erik van de Berg (triple World Champion) ended between them, silver medal.

Congratiulations to all! The Napoleon members made their best preformance ever on a WC. The junior title and a 6th place as the lowest spot....  The training did pay off. [WCTS I & II]

Napoleon would like to thank all involved with organising and making this one of the best tournaments ever. Too many people to thank but Ronald Kieftenbelt is a name that must be mentioned.

July 4th

Yesterday there was a tournament played in Antwerpen, Belgium. Sadly only 12 people arrived at the scene which was just enough to make it a ranking tournament. With only Patrick Dierckx as Belgian participent my propaganda at the Gravon rooms didn't pay off.... Vincent de Boer and Luc Adriaansen as organising team we had a easy day. But during the crucial match at board #1 in the final round there was an interessting situation. Three higher pieces (Major, Captain and Sargeant) can not protect the flag from 4 miners and a scout.... [Try it at home: flag between 3 bombs and defend with the three high pieces above. Tak the flag with 4 miners and a scout] At the end with 5 wins and one lost game the best player of the day called John Schepers. Wout Gulden second and Jens Schulze third.  I took some pictures, see them here [ Picture Garden]

June 26th

Disaster. My PC got infected by some virus... Left me sick also. Sure I made back-ups of this site but still it's a lot of work to get things in the air again. Missing links or errors can be reported here.

The Napoleon Web Crew deceided to make some changes to this site. Tournament results, the Calender can also be found at the homepages of our friends from the Schnuffel Team, the SBN Stratego Bond Nederland and elswere.They will be deleted in the near future.  Newly pages overhere will be 'Players' where individual Napoleonmembers information can be found. And 'Gravon' the very popular online Stratego site where you can play excellent Stratego (for free!) with players all over the globe. Play there, and improve your Stratego!

Not everything is ready...  I'm working on it.


 

June 6th

Yesterday the 4th Schnuffel / Napoleon Clash was played at "the Verleijsdonk residence" The Schnuffel team arrived around 10.30h with Mark Blockhaus, Frank van Thiel, Marco Vietz and (semi-newmember) Jan Raffelt . For Napoleon these happy few were selected: Mark van der Linden, Roel Verleijsdonk, Paul van Asseldonk and Luc Adriaansen. Not playing, but peeking over shoulders / serving coffee / discussing over setups / taking pictures / hitting the dartboard were: Bert Verleijsdonk, Peter Verleijsdonk, Wim Verleijsdonk, Peter Vissers, Wim Sikteoeboen and of course the Lady Of The House Maria Verleijsdonk. Luc had only one task and that was to bring the Clash Pokal with him. This huge trophy was standing proudly for a year in public view. But sadly Luc forgot to bring the top of the trophy :-( The trophy itself was peresnt at this Clash, but it wasn't complete... sorry for that guys.

First round, after the traditional Johnny van Geffen style of choosing your opponent [*], the Clash begon. For the non-insiders: The Clash means that every Schnuffel player plays every Napoleon member, then a final round #1 Schnuffel vs #1 Nalopeon etc.Atfer 5 round the team with the most poinst wins. Round one The Schnuffels started furious: 3 wins, 1 lost. Round two The Schnuffels still angry: 3 wins, 1 lost.Round three Napoleon is doing better but not good enough 2 won, 2 lost. Round four The same af the previous round 2 won, 2 lost. Before the final round could take place the current standings are Schnuffels 66 points Napoleon 46 points. Panic Napoleonmeeting! Napoleon need to win all in the final round to get 24 points (46 + 24 = 70 Schnuffels get then 4 + 66 = 70)

Final round Again a Johnny van Geffen style of choosing opponent (Jan and Mark won both all games so the 'best' must be choosen. Same as Roel & Luc 2 won - 2 lost, Marco & Frank and Paul & Mark 1 win - 3 lost) Pairing as follows: Board 1 Jan vs Roel, Board 2 Mark vs Luc, Board 3 Frank vs Paul, Board 4 Marco vs Mark. When Jan won quickly his game versus Roel, all Napoleons knew the Pokal went to Germany... Mark won for the second time this day his match against Luc. Mark and Paul could capture the flag of Marco and Frank. End result Schnuffels 85 points Napoleon 55 points. Choosing the Best player was a difficult task. For the first time in the Clash history two players of the same team must play against eachother!! Both Jan and Mark won all games so a game of barrage Stratego should deceide. Mark Blockhaus won.

Afterwards there was a nice BBQ were the meat kept comming and comming. No Diebels but Palm or Jeager beer. Or non alcoholic for the drivers amoung us. At 21.00h the Schnuffels returned home and we had a little darts tourney won by The Combination Wim & Peter Verleijsdonk.It was a very nice day where several Stratego players played their favoured game and talked about other things...... I want to thank the Family Verleijsdonk to be so kind to let this happen at their house.

[ Results of the Clash] [ Pictures taken by Napoleon] [Schnuffel site link for more pictures ]

End conclusion: Nice day, lots of fun. Schnuffels crushed Napoleon by 85 vs 55. Making it equal. Two Clash victictories for The Schnuffel Team, two for Napoleon. The trophy is in Germany for 2004 but the headpiece is still in Holland! Hahhahah

 

Jan, Sorry for being a weak opponent, Grtz Luc

[* ] "The traditional Johnny van Geffen style of choosing your opponent" This means you put in a Marshall, General, Colonel and Major in a big bowl. Then pick them out one by one. Johnny van Geffen is the chairman of Napoleon who couldn't be present today. 5th June is his sons birthday.
