Random Topics - Battleship

The game Battleship (also known as Battleships) is a guessing game played by two people. It is known throughout the world as a pencil and paper game and predates World War I in this form. It was invented by Clifford Von Wickler in the early 1900s, but he never patented the game and it was soon published by Milton Bradley Company in 1943 as the pad-and-pencil game "Broadsides, the Game of Naval Strategy".

1 You are actually buying a game with that name? What for? The only thing one needs for battleship is a pen and a paper. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on February 6, 2010, 2:21 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Personally, I can't wait for the "Hungry, Hungry Hippos" Re-Boot. Rumor has it, it's about how the four Hippos met and it takes place in an alternate timeline. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on February 4, 2010, 4:04 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Whoa; the new "Battleship" is THAT bad? Thank goodness my family still has the older, better version--from the 90s! That version can be easily played on the family room floor! But, other than that, Battleship is a very good and innovative concept in family board games. -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 4, 2010, 3:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 They're planning a movie based on the game. First movies based on old cartoons and TV shows, then movies based on Disney rides, now movies based on toys and classic games? What next, will there also be a movie based on Boggle? Or Scrabble? Or Perfection? Hell, why not Operation, too? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 4, 2010, 12:24 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 It was so bad, that Mrs. Chubby Rain and myself could not even play one game- it was that frustrating, then I went to Amazon to read the customer reviews- all bad. It was all to save money on the manufacture of the game, and it bones HARD. It hurts your hands to play as the new display/board is so awkward and hard to use. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 4, 2010, 10:04 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 What a shame. Why does some idiot (usually a Marketing person) think they can totally re-invent a classic and THINK they can actually make it better? Back in the day, my brother and I used to spend hours taunting each other over this game until someone threw it across the room in exasperation for having their battleship sunk for the umpteenth time in a row. Yep. Good times. Good times. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on February 4, 2010, 9:22 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Having recently gotten this game as a gift, I was unfortunate enough to get the "revamped" version that came out a few years ago. What a travesty. The pieces all fall out of the board, and you have to put it on a table to play, and have fingers the size of a 4 year old to even try to manipulate the new (note:cheaper) cardboard and plastic display. Just a horrible cash grab at the expense of a classic board game. Truly this was a Filleting of Battleship! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 4, 2010, 8:07 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
