Battleship Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
"You sunk my battleship!" Who hasn't said that at least once? I didn't own this game myself as a kid, but I definitely played it with my friends more than once. I love how you need to have a strategy as you play this game, and that it's not *all* luck. This is another game that kids as well as adults will enjoy playing, but because of the small pieces it should only be played by kids 7 and up. We definitely don't want anyone swallowing the little red and white markers! Also, like Connect 4, you can only play with 2 players, so this isn't really a game for the *whole* family to play at the same time.

In case you've never played, the object of this game is to destroy your opponents fleet before he/she destroys yours. You call out a coordinate (like F-7) and see if you hit anything on your opponent's field. You can then use that information to plan your next hit. In the mean time, your opponent is doing the same thing. Once someone knocks out all 5 ships in the other person's fleet, he/she is the winner!

Now it's time to be the commodore and play! Win Battleship! There will be 3 winners!!!

I follow on Google publicaly. My Dad was Air Force, my brother Navy and a special friend is in the Army National Guard in Afganistan right now. Its would be hard to pick one. I also have a niece who is going to college to be a lawyer and wants to be a Navy Jag. I guess since I named the Navy twice I can pick it. I just support all brances and love that old USA flag that fly's over all. ybutler@oppcatv.com
