What I love: This is one of those classic games that adults like to play as much as kids. The object is to sink your opponent’s five battleships (of different lengths) by strategically calling out coordinates on your board. Your opponent tells you whether it’s a hit (you insert a red peg) or a miss (you insert a white peg). When you fill a boat with red pegs, your opponent can say “Boom!” or “You sank my Battleship!” (as they used to say on the commercials) just to make things more dramatic.
What I would change: Make a magnet wand that picks up spilled pegs!
