I've played Battleship before at a family member's house. They had an older traditional version of the game with two separate cases, nice quality, etc. I loved playing it. My 8-year-old son enjoyed playing it with me, so I suggested that to my mother as a birthday present. Unfortunately, I didn't know there were different versions these days.

In this version, there is a single 2-sided console that the two players share. Unfortunately, the pegs and ships do not fit well into the holes, and since the board is vertical, they frequently fall out. If someone lightly brushes against a peg, it will fall out. If you look at a peg, it may fall out. The whole point is to be able to mark your misses and hits, and if you don't know what you've already guessed, what's the point? I was almost in tears with frustration after only 5-10 minutes of play. Sadly, this is a cheaply designed game that is not ready to be on the broader market.

On a side note, this version has a hexagon grid, so that there are more options as to how to orient your boats. In my mind, it makes the game a bit more complex, especially for children, and I prefer the traditional board with rows and columns.

Battleship is a great game, but do not buy this version.

I'm hearing the upside down version featuring VELCRO will be coming out next year... so you might want to hold off a little longer if you havent already splurged. Im also hearing they are sending a tube of glue to all those that bought this version and bother to file a complaint with the company. Its nice to know they are responsive to their customers concerns.

I would have given this game 4 stars on the fun scale if only the pieces would have stayed in place. However, because this game more resembles "52 card pickup" than the original battleship, I can only give it 1 star.

As others said, the pegs fall out constantly. Not worth the effort. This one's going back. Do not buy!

My daughter will be in third grade next fall and I thought it might be a good idea to introduce her to the game I loved playing so much as a child. The timing is also right for her as I can attest that it had allowed me to grasp the concept of Cartesian coordinate with relative ease; I have much to thank this game.

Therefore, when I was about to pick this game up on a recent shopping expedition, I was horrified to find that the good old orthogonal arrangement of holes was tweaked into a convoluted diamond pattern a la Chinese Checkers. The beauty that lay within simple yet educational nature of the game was totally obliterated in this edition. How am I going to convey to my daughter that her 'torpedo' is off by one to the right and two up thereby allowing her to understand how to read the x-y values off a Cartesian coordinate?

Also, the classic version I played in the late 70's came with two plastic attache cases. My friend and I would enter the room toting the attache case from opposite ends of the room and sit across the table from each other, thereby heightening the drama. This version just sits in the middle of the table... blah.

I cannot comment on the quality of the game pieces since this was one exception where I feel justified judging the content by looking at its cover. I believe that the content would not possess any redeeming quality.

I think I'll look at auction sites and try to score the version I used to play. New is not always better nor is it in any way improved.

This is what happens when idiot board members who make 7-figure salaries who are so out of touch with the rest of the world start making 'executive' decisions.

I just finished playing this with my 8 year old. Never been so frustrated with a board game in my life. The pegs fall out constantly... by the end of the game it's like it's raining pegs.
The fact that the board is connected to not only the other player but the tray the pegs are in makes it that much more frustrating.

The peg trays are too deep and narrow and it makes it hard to get them out. They're hinged and wicked tight so it's hard to push them in and you risk pegs flying out all over the place.

I just barely like there are more options for placement but because the pieces too bulky.

Final verdict... I wish I could return this game because it totally sucks. They've taken a good game and over engineered it to the point of make it crap.

We bought this for our 6 year old son. Very disappointed as it is cheaply made and not very functional. The ships and pegs fall out of the board frequently and it is hard for our son to determine the actual locations due to the weird hexagonal location spots and uneven grid. I went to the auction site and found a classic 1971 vintage battleship game for just a few more dollars than this one. It is just like the one I played when I was growing up. We have switched to playing actual games with the old vintage version. My son loves it. He uses the new updated non-functional version to play "make believe" games when we don't have time to play with him.

Wow, it sure takes a lot of design talent to take a game that can be played with two pieces of graph paper and a pencils, and turn it into something that is as aggrivating as it is fun. (Yes folks, you don't have to buy Battleship to play it, just print two copies of an empty spreadsheet with square cells, agree on some rules for numbers and types of ships, and the possibilities are endless.)

So, you have a game where two people have to set up independent grids of ships and put pegs in holes, so what do you do? Well, put both sides on one piece of plastic and mount them perfectly vertically of course! That way the pegs fall off while you play, and add to that wonderful feature the fact that this game has to be assembled and reassembled each time you play (if you want to store it in the box), and plastic pieces that are really hard to put together and take apart, and you have the recipe for literally minutes of fun!

Don't they play test games anymore? Anyone heard of prototyping before mass production? Anyway, buy an electronic version, or play on the computer, or use pencil and paper. Go lower tech or higher tech and have a blast.
