Battleship 001

Battleship is a classic game that I remember playing while growing up.  I loved the idea of playing a game that wasn’t too difficult for me & it made me feel like a grown up.  I was excited to review this game because I knew my older 2 kids could handle it on their own & therefore have a new game to keep them busy when we’re having “quiet time”.

Battleship 002

We pulled out the game while the youngest was napping & I showed them how to play.  It only took a few minutes for them to get the hang of it.  They played the classic version & really enjoyed it.  We’ve never seen Battleship the movie, but I’m sure someone who’s a fan of the movie would like the references.  ie: Alien vs Navy, the movie-based ships like the Flagship & the Red Stormer Stinger, etc.

Battleship 003

I really like that each unit has a drawer to store the Special Ops cards & the pegs.  They also fold up nicely & attach together for easy storage.  This could be a good travel game depending on the kids/situation.  Most of the pieces won’t roll around or fall out while playing, but you would still have to be careful to not lose pieces.

I recommend this game for ages 7 and up.  It’s a great strategy & thinking game.

    I think it’s funny that it’s both “classic” and the movie edition. 🙂

    This sounds like a great game for my two oldest grandsons. I have never played it so maybe they can teach me how to play. Maybe a christmas present?

    I remember playing this as a child and loved it. Folks always complained about it because we used a lot of batteries

  6. Love this I haven’t played in years

    Wow, how the game has evolved! I love this light up one!

  8. Emily W says:

    I like how the game is mostly the same as the one I remember from when I was a kid. The Special Ops cards are new, but everything else looks about the same. No need to improve on a classic!
