My 7 and 5 year old boys "got" the concept right away. They loved building the Lego-like ships, and enjoy playing with them even when not playing Battleship. But there were some serious flaws that make this unsuitable for kids at the low end of the suggested age range.

The new gameplay lets each ship attack once for each "hit" left until it sinks. On your turn, you pick one ship and then fire as many times as it is able. Advanced rules let you modify your ships so that some have more hits, and therefore more opportunities to attack. Instead of a basic 5,4,4,3,2 configuration, you might make a 10-hit mega ship and spend the rest of your points on 2-hit escorts.

Shots are tracked on separate little plastic pegboards. To take a turn, you first put in blue pegs for each of your shots. Then you call them out one at a time for your opponent to check, while simultaneously replacing the blue pegs with red or white ones to indicate hits and misses. Your opponent then uses a different type of red peg on the Lego-ships to mark hits, except for the Submarine and Aircraft carrier which in some cases require guns/planes to be removed.

After listening to my boys play and fight for a couple of hours, here's how the concept fails in execution:
1) The board and screens are cardboard. When assembled, they do not fit back in the box, so cleanup means taking them apart. Furthermore, my kids cannot assemble them unaided, as the design requires you to fit the tabs from two pieces into a slot on the third, from opposite sides. It almost requires 3 hands. After a weekend which included 3 cycles of assembly/disassembly the tab/slot connections are already showing signs of wear.

I strongly recommend you don't buy this version of battleship. It is made out of cardboard and and cardboard tabs hold the game together. After one use it's already showing signs of wear and tear. If you do buy this you should expect that it won't last very long. Also you can't store it in the box without taking it apart, and it doesn't come with a container to store it when it's assembled so you're stuck assemblying it everytime you want to play which isn't good if you're a parent. Would be better if you bought a different version and not the U-Build version.

Very cheaply built. It won't be long and it'll tear/rip and not work properly. We need to get away from cheaply-made products like this from China. Maybe if it were USA made, it would be constructed better and hold together much longer. I'd rather pay more money for something that will last longer. Man, those old Battleship games were great. My husband still has his. It's 30 years old!!

I am so disappointed with this toy, and will reiterate what other reviewers have said:

1) I'm all for eco-friendly cardboard game boards, but this was not the right way to do cardboard. You have to assemble and disassemble the cardboard game board every time, so the tabs start to show wear after just a few times playing. This game is just not built to last very long at all - so much for eco-friendly!

2) The battleships do not attach to the game board at all. Silly me, when I saw the box, I though they must be magnetic or something. They are not. They slide all over the place during play. Very frustrating.

3) The idea of building your own ships is great, but many of the pieces the boys will find cool (aka, the guns) block the spots where you are supposed to mark hits on the ship if you use them. This means that you have to remove pieces of your ship during game play as your ship is hit, which makes #2 a big problem. Also, depending on how you build your ship, the spots you've left to record hits may or may not match up with the coordinates on the game board that they represent. This is very, very confusing for boys on the lower end of the age range.

4) The tray that was provided to keep the pegs in is the cheapest, crummiest plastic - it will not last.

5) The new rules are confusing. We've gone back to using the old 'everyone takes a turn' rules.

I think all of these things combined just suck the fun out of the game. It's too bad, because it seems like it could have been a great game had it only been designed better. I bought the game because my son loves playing Battleship and was begging to have it at home, and because he loves legos. It seemed like a sure thing.

My 5-year-old boy got this for Christmas, and it has been very disappointing. I am 36 years old and was remembering the Battleship that I grew up playing, and this is a far cry from that.

Disappointments: 1) The cardboard playing surface is cheap, cheap, cheap. As other reviewers have said, the boards have to be DISASSEMBLED every time you want to put the game away! And, in assembly, one piece of cardboard must be inserted through another (4 separate times), and the wear-and-tear on those joints is quickly showing. I foresee that at some point, there just won't be enough support there to hold the game together in place. Milton Bradley, this is ridiculous. Seriously, you are toy designers? Talk to some parents! 2) Also, because the board is cardboard, the ships do not insert into it. They just sit on top of it, and can slide all around. So, maybe you think this isn't much of a problem? Well, that's before you might know that when one of your ships is hit, you have to REMOVE a piece of artillery, and then replace it with a little red "I've been hit" cone. It is virtually impossible to remove the artillery (attached micro-lego style)without shifting your boat around. If you manage to keep all of your boats in exactly the same locations for the entire game, you have achieved a true feat of dedication and meticulousness. 3) The gameboard on which your boats sit is built to a different scale than the grid on which you keep track of your own prior shots. On the old "vintage" Battleship that I remember, those 2 grids were exactly the same, one in the top of the little case (so, vertical, when the game was open), and one on the bottom (so, horizontal, when the game was being played).
