Battleship with planes, what?
July 6, 2018
This isn’t your classic battleship game you played years ago, it’s been updated, but for the best? In my mind “no”. They’ve added planes, but that just adds 3 more shots to win & they’re not even the same planes, ones a bomber & ones a fighter jet, they both have 3 holes, but isn’t the battle about sinking each other’s armada? Plus,1 of the planes is too tall to shut the top when set up, so no stopping a game in the midst & shut the lid. Isn’t the deal to have the same ships? If we have the same ships shouldn’t we have the same planes? Who ever sunk a plane by dropping a bomb? Ok, I know what your thinking, man, this guy sure is making a lot out of a nothing, but I grew up sinking my opponents likewise military. If you feel like me, get the classic battleship game or don’t add the planes when playing.
Now on to something that DOES matter..they made the “hit/miss” pegs bigger at the top to hold on to, having dexterity problems I thought this would be a plus, but once you dump them all out into the handy “take anywhere trays”, you’ll find they don’t all fit if you want to close the lid, so you have to leave some in the box. If you don’t take the box with you, the way it’s designed you take the chance of running out, we personally never have run out during a game, but after losing some, this may be a problem.
I would suggest anyone who played the Classic Battleship game & want to relive those days or show the kids how it was in “the good old days”, get the classic game, if you just want a game, this will work & the game will last a bit longer
