June 6th, 2012The Classic Battleship Movie Edition Game
By Shawn DesRochers
You sunk my Battleship
Battleship has always been a childhood favorite of mine that has not diminished any with age. The Battleship game is as fun now as it was in public school, where I would play the game for hours. Hasbro has now updated the classic Battleship game to reflect the story of the upcoming Battleship movie.
The Classic Battleship Movie Edition Game features similar game-play but with navy ships and alien ships. The movie edition game comes in two folding hard-cases that make it convenient to transport and store all of the pieces for easy play and is the ideal size for summer traveling.
The new game features the search-and-destroy strategy of the classic game, but includes movie-based cards that give you extra fire power. You draw a card and then follow the directions on it – such as Fire 3 Shots or Com Tower. You choose a side – Navy or Alien – and secretly hide your ships. There are then different variations you can play. You can also tailor the game-play, so players of different ages and skill levels can join in on the fun.
Pieces include five navy ships, five alien ships, two decks of special ops cards, red and white pegs, rules, and a reference card.
I think the Special Ops cards are a fantastic addition to the game as they add a bit of strategy. Classic Battleship Movie Edition won’t replace my classic battleship, but I do look forward to playing the game again.
Game is recommended for ages 7 years & up.
Available at most major toy retailers nationwide and on HasbroToyShop.com.
