Battleship Classic Board Game Reviewed

 

Battleship Classic Board Game Reviewed

Battleship is a classic naval combat board game of strategy and excitement. In this board game, you will search the ocean floor to destroy your opponent’s fleet of ships.

The board game was first introduced by Milton-Bradley in 1967 as a plastic board and peg game. The game battleship comes from earlier versions of a pencil and paper game from the 1930s.

Battleship has also evolved into many electronic versions of the game today. The game I had growing up was the original plastic board and peg game. I have spent many hours playing this game with my brothers and friends.

The game we have today is the same, but it was made by Hasbro. I have never tried one of the electronic versions but thought about it many times. Today I play the same battleship game with my grandchildren that I played growing up.

How to Play Battleship:

Each player has a fleet of five ships consisting of the following:

Class of Ship                       #of Hits to Sink the Ship

Aircraft Carrier                                  5

Battleship                                          4

Destroyer                                          3

Submarine                                        3

Patrol Boat                                        2

Battleship classic board game

Each player has a plastic case with two grids, white pegs, and red pegs. One grid is the ocean floor, this is where you place your fleet of ships either horizontal or vertical. The upper grid is to record your misses with white pegs and your hits with red pegs.

 You can also use your ocean floor to track your opponent's misses with white pegs. This is an option and I never use it.

A player calls out a location on the grid and the opposing player says either hit or miss. If it is a miss the first player marks the location with a white peg, so he doesn’t call that location again. If it is a hit, then he places a red peg in that location and the opposing player places a red peg in the ship that was hit.

Now, the first player must figure out if the ship is placed horizontal or vertical on the opposing player’s grid. Once a player has sunk the other player's entire fleet, he wins the game.

Battleship is just another classic game that has been around for many years and will provide hours of fun.

  1. Battleship has been a favorite board game in my family for a long time. One of my all-time favorite games to play with the kids & then the grandkids, but also fun between the grown-ups. I even remember the pencil & paper version from when I was a kid! Fun review, Sam. Now I want to play the game again.

  2. I really enjoy board games, but only played a few growing up - checkers, Monopoly, backgammon and Scrabble (my favorite). It is only as an adult that I have been introduced to others, including Parcheesi and Sorry. Thanks for introducing me to yet another classic!

  3. I can hear it now.....You sunk my battleship! We had a lot of fun playing with our children too and they are now starting the same process with their children. When we all get together it can sometimes be mayhem, but always lots of fun. This is a great classic game Sam! Thanks for giving it such a great review!

  4. I also grew up playing Battleship with my siblings and friends. I always enjoyed playing the board game and like you, I have not played the electronic version. I haven't thought about it in years, but it really is a fun game! One everyone should own and play.
