Try this unorthodox sort of formation and tips

Try this formation:

(1 star, Major, Private, 5 star, captain, 3 star, Private, Colonel, Private.)
(Private, Lt.Col, 4 star, 2 star, Private, Private, Spy, Private, Spy)
( 2nd Lt., blank, blank, Private, blank, Flag, blank, blank,blank) I learned this technique from a friend.

This is a defensive formation but can also be an offensive formation depending on your situation. On the left flank you may notice that the only defense it has is the 4 star. That's because your focus is to either eliminate his/her high rank pieces. Let him/her eat your pieces on the right side of the flank because once he/she eats one of the privates then eat his/her piece with the spy. He/She won't suspect that flank has a double spy so he'll try to avoid the spy and eat the other private then if he/she does pawn it with the other spy. I'm sure that if he does those moves you would've eaten one of his 1-5 star generals. Then I'm sure he/she has a spy on that corner but once you've eaten it then you can pawn his middle flank(if he/she doesn't have a spy) and his right flank with your 5-star and 3-star and you can get your flag across and you've won.

Note: It always depends on you on how you will use this formation.
The flaw: If he/she pawns your left flank then your only option is to get your flag across in the middle with the 5-star and 3-star and the spies.

Tip(unrelated to the formation): Your 5 star will most likely be always the bait for the spy. How to avoid?
Notice his/her pieces when they start moving closer to the 5-star(or any other high ranking pieces) which is always either a private or a spy but 95% sure it's a spy. Once you've identified his/her spy you can now avoid it and most likely his/her other spy is in the other flanks.

Hope this will be effective to you. Good luck and happy playing.

Ok the formation you gave had more than 6 privates so i revised it a bit

when i tried it out i won, so thanks, though the person i played against seemed a little predictable. i'll be sure to try it again for verification. again, thanks.

Sorry for the so many privates! LOL! :D
Just replace the other privates on the second flank with sergeant and the other forgotten pieces XD

Sorry for the hard time of figuring it out. haha

Sorry sa napakadaming privates. Naguguluhan ako at the time. Anyway I would like to thank to those who visited my post and I hope all of us learned new strategies for playing the game.

Thanks again! :D
