Following a bouncing ping-pong ball version of Connect 4, released last year, Hasbro updates another of its classic board games to appeal to a generation who spent most of their colleges bouncing plastic balls into beer-filled Solo copper. Alcohol is not obliged to play Hasbro's new battleship shot, but creating your own rules for a board game is always half the gap, right?
In Battleship Shots, you no longer have to worry about losing the tiny little cursor pins as the game's mechanics are fundamentally different. Each player still organizes a small boat fleet that they fit, but it is now on a much smaller 3×5 grid that is always visible to your opponent. Instead of blindly calling out coordinates and hoping you get a hit, players physically play balls over a divider on the opponent's grid, hoping to land inside a ship that counts as a hit. The winner is the first to lower his opponent's entire fleet, or the first player to get a special red ball to land in his opponent's small fleet.
There is once in the fall for $ 20, but the game is pretty simple, but it is assuming you have not changed the rules of the battleship shot to increase the level of ineboration and challenge. You can always expand your fleet with a lot of Solo Cup frigates, and require players to take a shot when they beat. You drank my battleship!
