We set Mandy the challenge of playing this with the ever competitive Katy. Katy had already been and read the rules and downloaded the app on iOS and was a step ahead of Mandy. Once they figured out how to play this (apparently grown adults find it difficult despite 7 years olds being able to play this easily!) the two battled it out using the coordinate, destruction and reference cards. Katy of course won (Mandy definitely did not let her win… ). The girls were desperate for a rematch which means this game is addictive and entertaining even for adults. ”
Because this is so compact, the battleship shuffle cards would be ideal for travelling, making this the perfect Christmas gift for 2015.
