Battleship is a guessing game for two players. It was known worldwide as a pencil and paper game from World War I era. There is no known creator but was published by various companies in the 1930s. In 1967 it was released as a plastic board game by Milton Bradley. Since then it has had many updates, from being computerized in 1977 and by 1989 they came out with a talking version of the game.
On the stations, you use the main board to straightly place your ships, to keep them safe from your opponent. All of the ships have a different hit value, depending on how big the ship is. The main objective of the game is to sink all the opponents’ ships before yours. You use the grid (A-J and 1-12) to call out where you think your opponent placed their battleships.
I personally love playing this game. My brother and I would always play it after we got home from school or in my mother’s classroom after school. It’s just a simplistic game that you can complete very quickly and you don’t get to frustrated at. The only downside is that it is a two person game, therefore, you can’t play when you have multiple people to entertain.
