HASBRO ~ Classic Battleship Movie Edition Game

Based on the debut BATTLESHIP motion picture which opened on May 18th, this movie themed version of the classic BATTLESHIP game brings to life all the excitement of the big screen.

Sink your opponent's fleet before they sink yours in this heart~pounding, action~packed naval combat game.

Choose to command the navy or the alien fleet, and defeat your enemy with new special ops cards that allow you to fire out complete columns of coordinates, fire as many shots as you have ships or force your opponent to reveal un~hit coordinates.

ARV ~ $24.99
The classic "hit" or "miss" game comes in two folding hard cases that make it convenient to transport and store all of the pieces for easy play.

You are at the helm in the fight for your future of the Earth.  Will you command an Alien Fleet or defend the Human Navy?

Scan the battlefield for locations to conceal your highly~detailed, movie~based ships.  Then, brace yourself for search~and~destroy battle intensity as you compete with the enemy to keep your ships afloat.  

Choose from three game variations for edge~of~your seat excitement~!!

2 game units
5 navy ships
5 alien ships
2 decks of special ops cards
red & white pegs
Rules & reference card

2 players
Ages 7 and up

My kids, especially the boys, absolutely loved this game~!!  They had never played it though they have seen commercials and they were pumped to be able to check it out for their very own~!!

This is a game that even my random seven~year~old can play.  I was very worried that he would become disgruntled as he does not like to lose but he adapted quite well even with all his most un~strategic way of playing.  

The boys were playing this for hours and hours and whenever they are looking for something to do, they break out their newest fascination and play away.  I don't even hear a peep out of them except..."hit" or "miss"...lol  Okay...sometimes my youngest son needs to be reminded that he's already asked to a coordinate or be reminded not to put pegs in places where they aren't needed.

We were also impressed with the different style of Alien ships that were cleverly included in this version of BATTLESHIP.  Everyone wants to be the Alien ships in this household...lol

My kids cannot wait to see the new BATTLESHIP movie and with wonderful tie~ins such as the Classic BATLLESHIP movie edition game, you cannot go wrong for fun and entertainment.  HASBRO has proved themselves to shine in the imaginations of children~!!
