Battleships

Battleships!

The goal behind this classic strategic game is to try and sink your opponent’s battleships. Each player tries to hide their ships on the grid and avoid being ‘hit’ by the other player’s ‘shots’. A player is given two grids, one to put their own ships on and one to mark their guesses and whether or not their shots succeeded.
