I had both versions of this game the original and the electronic. The electronic version was noisy but cool. The only problem was that you had to program your coordinates in before you played which took damn near 30 minutes. You didn't have to rely on the other person to confirm hits. You just punched in the coordinates and hit fire. When you hit the fire button if you got a hit the battleship would explode on the indicator. During gameplay there was this constant bleep bleep be-da-da-da-bleep! Got more play out of the original, no fun if you can't cheat.

I remember playing a "strip" version of this with my step-sister. we had to take off a piece of clothing each time 1 of our ships was sunk. i still look back on that fondly-good icebreaker for a newly "bradyized" family. we never told anyone.

Oh, Hell yes! I played this with My 1/2 sister, and pretty much did the same thing the other reviewer mentioned as well - that is, placing pegs in other holes to remind Me of where they had called out and managing around it, or even moving the battle ship to another spot! Needless to say, I won every time! HA!

When she eventually caught on, I tired of the game and went to My next unsuspecting victim! It became really interesting when we played for stakes!

So none of you ever stuck a white one up your nose, which came out red, and became a family joke for years and years....hmmm, that's good.

Ha ha when me and my brother used to play I would cheat big time. He would call out a number and I would secretly peg it on my board so I knew exactly all the calls he made so I could move my smallest ship around, the little guy with 2 holes. He always wondered why I won until he came around to my side and saw all the pegs in all the holes and he yelled out "You cheater and proceeded to try to give me the typical younger sibling beating until I yelled out "Mom, Jim is trying to beat me up" to which he promptly stopped as I was the youngest and a real brat. HEE HEE Loved that game.

The commercials weren't so bogus... I remember I would wait until I sunk my brother's battleship and we would chorus, "You sunk my Battleship!" It was the whole point of the game! Wasn't it?

Although those years are way behind me, I feel like I've lived through them. I know everything about them anyway... Child of the Sixties... that's what mother calls me!

I remember the commercials! "You sunk my battleship"! Yeah, like kids would really say that....whenever any of us started to lose, we'd just knock over the boards!

This was the only game I would want to play with my little sister. If I was losing, I would throw marbles at her case to knock out her pegs so she would not know what shots she took! She would still play with me - now that is love.

the electronic version released in the late 70s quite literally blew the manual version out of the water. no pun intended.

Moving the ships around to cheat? Strictly amatuer.

My Uncle Dave taught me one even better. Don't put your ships on the grid at all and watch your opponent go nuts as you blast him out of the water!

This was a great game that could last forever especially when you cheated by repeatedly moving your ships around!

We had a Battleship Game, but me and her dad played with it more than daughter did. I really enjoyed it, since I outsmarted him most of the time.

I found an old Battleship game at the Salvation Army store. Brought it into work, and play with the guys here at the office.....even though we sit in front of computers all day. Classic!
