Battleship was released in 1931 although it does have some links to L’Attaque which was played during the First World War. It was designed by Clifford Von Wickler and is a game that can only be played by 2 players aged 8 and over.

It’s a game of guess work and deduction that is considered to be more suitable for the younger audience.

Who’s it best suited for?

This is a great game for children (ages 8+) to enjoy as it is based on both guesswork and a tactical approach to eventually work out where the ships are located. Therefore, once children begin to play the game and hit targets, they have to take a methodical approach to how the game is played as well as work out the overall position of the ships.
