Battleship is a classic naval combat game that brings together competition, strategy, and excitement. In a head-to-head battle, players search for the enemy’s fleet of ships and destroy them one by one. No ship is safe in this game of stealth and suspense. Players must be cunning to take out all of their opponent’s ships before they lose their own!
Exciting Game of Strategy
Players set up folding boards back-to-back, hiding each playing surface from the opposing player. Each student places 5 plastic ships around their board, with the object of placing them in areas their opponent won’t call out. After placing ships, players roll a die to see who goes first.
The first player calls out a set of coordinates as a guess to where they think his/her opponent hid a ship. For example, “B-10” which would correspond to column B, row 10. If the coordinates called are part of a ship, the defending player says “hit” and marks their ship with a red peg. The offensive player does the same on the top part of their own board, to represent the areas they already called. If there is no ship, the player says “miss” and players mark their boards with a white peg. The game continues until all of an opponent’s ships are sunk.
Set includes 2 portable battle cases, 10 plastic ships, 84 red “hit” pegs, 168 white “miss” pegs, label sheet, and instructions. Played with 2 players, ages 7 and up.
