Normally we cover less traditional board games on TableTap. But sometimes we like to make sure you know about what’s going on in the world of digital board games that might be a little more familiar.
And today is one of those days. That’s because the official digital version of Battleship is currently on sale on the App Store for just 99p / 99c. It’s only been out for a few days, so sorry if you bought it when it first landed and it was more expensive.
If you don’t know what the game is, it’s all about trying to sink your opponent’s battleships. You set them out in a grid, then take it in turns to choose points on a grid. If you get a hit, your opponent has to let you know.
You sunk my battleship
The first player to sink the other’s ships is declared the winner. The key is remembering where you’ve hit, and working out where the rest of the ship might be positioned.
