Another thing I did not know

While fishing around the internet for something interesting to post tonight I stumbled onto a list of Grandmasters at .... Stratego! I assume that these titles are handed out by the organisers of the Mind Sports Olympiad, but I do not know what the qualification system is. Apart from the GM title, there are also IM's and even CM's. Of course there are not FM's (as the F belongs to FIDE) but maybe they could consider MM's as a future title.
BTW these titles are not limited to Stratego, but can also be earned for Twixt, Abalone and a number of other games (Listed here). If you think you are already a master at some these games, and only need a title to confirm it, then you might want to give the 2013 Mind Sports Olympiad a go. It is in London from the 16th to the 25th of August, and all the details are at this link.
