The Rules of Battleships

Objective of the Game

Battleship is a war-themed board game for two players in which the opponents try to guess the location of their opponent's warships and sink them. Players take turns calling out row and column coordinates on the other player's grid in an attempt to identify a square that contains a ship.

The game board each player gets has two grids, an upper and lower grid. The lower grid is used by the player to "hide" the location of his own ships, while the upper grid is used to record the shots fired toward the opponent and to document whether those shots were hits or misses.

Setting up the Game

Each player receives a game board and five ships of varying lengths. Each ship has holes where the "hit" pegs are inserted and a supply of hit and miss markers (white and red pegs). The five ships are:

  • Carrier, which has five holes
  • Battleship, which has four holes
  • Cruiser, which has three holes
  • Submarine, which has three holes
  • Destroyer, which has two holes

The two players should be positioned so they face each other across a game table. Their target grids back up to one another vertically so that neither player can see his opponent's ocean grid and ship locations.
