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 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.
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.
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.
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.

Awful. Your shots and your game pieces go on the same board so if you and an opponent have pieces in the same spot it's hard to track. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Richard Griffin

horrible product, pegs don't stay in and the game is made of the cheapest plastic I have ever seen.

The hexagon shapes instead of squares make a simple game into a very strategic and deep experience. Used mine at least 100 times and still is in great shape.Published 19 months ago by R. H. Bauer
