“You sunk my battleship!” Those are words that every child (or adult) wants to hear when playing Battleship. The Battleship game is a classic one that has been around since 1943, when it was played using a paper and pencil. Now, we have cool grid boards and red and white pegs to track our progress. Hasbro has just released the Classic Battleship Movie Edition game, which ties in with the upcoming “Battleship” movie that pits man versus alient.
About Hasbro’s Classic Battleship Movie Edition Game
It’s been awhile since I played Battleship, but fortunately, just like riding a back, you don’t forget how to play. Set-up of the game is easy and I love how everything can be boxed up into one convenient carrying case. The case splits up into two boards – one Navy and the other Alien. You can tell the difference between the two both by the image behind the backboard and the ships. Navy has the traditional carrier and battleship ships while the Alien fleet consists of a flagship and stingers, to name a few.
Within each board is a pull out storage tray where you can store the special playing cards that come with this new version of Battleship, along with red HIT pegs and white MISS pegs. There are peg holes along the left and right sides of the board to store your ships when not in play.
This latest version has a new Special Ops game option that involves the playing cards I mentioned earlier. Each side gets 24 cards which are drawn at the beginning of each turn. Each card has one of 4 gameplay options that vary the number of shots fired.
Along with the Classic Battleship Movie Edition game, Hasbro has also released a new KRE-O Battleship Combat Chopper set. With this set, kids can build their own chopper, complete with spinning rotor and missiles that you they can launch to let their imaginations fly.
Check out a store near you to find these new Hasbro games. You can also find Hasbro’s Classic Battleship Movie Edition game on Amazon for just $19.99. The KRE-O Battleship Combat Chopper set is available on Amazon for $19.97.
