The following is more of a customer service gripe than a comment about the product but when I went to return the product I had to work it out with the 3rd party seller and while they were willing to take the item back they would not provide a return shipping label despite the fact that I felt their product page for the game was misleading. I would not have purchased this game if I knew it was simply a duplicate of Battleship. After going back and forth with them and Amazon I was eventually provided a refund via the A to Z Guarantee and was allowed to keep the product.
* Packaging and design aesthetic is nice.
* Box and game materials are fairly small. This would be good for a car trip or as pack-away for maybe a cabin stay or vacation. You could even ditch the box and just bring the booklets.
* If you like Battleship you'll like this. It's guaranteed.
* Once the booklet is used up your kind of up a creek for this game since you have a map and draw in your ships (instead of placing plastic pegged ships in Battleship). If you use pencil you can erase your old games I guess. Or make photocopies.
* If you want a more traditional gameboard you are out of luck.
* Dazzle camouflage plays no part in the gameplay.
* Very little historical information is included
* They had an opportunity to do something fun, new, and unique and squandered that to instead ride in the wake of a well known game.
Final thoughts: unless you want a more portable low-tech version of the game, why wouldn't you just buy Battleship?
