Battleship

Battleship / Bataille Navale France. 1969.

“You sank my battleship!”

Battleship, or Battleships, is a two-player game in which you guess the location of your opponent’s fleet of ships on a concealed numbered and lettered grid. The aim is to destroy your opponent’s fleet before your own fleet is destroyed. Battleship can be dated back to World War I when it was a home-made pen and paper game. In later years numerous companies published printed pad-and-pencil versions, then in 1967 the Milton Bradley company (MB Games) produced a plastic board and peg version with miniature ships. Later incarnations by MB included electronic, speaking, and player vs computer versions.
