Battle Ship

2 players.


A quick game that will surprise you with the challenge.


Setting up: On an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper (or A4). Players each take one of the long sides. They must draw three ships. One ~.5 inches., one 1 inch, and one-two inches.

Playing the game: Players will take turns “firing” from their ship, at their opponent's ship. To fire a player will put their index finger on top of a pencil (the taller the pencil, the harder it is) and flicking the pencil with their other index finger. A hit is successful if the pencil draws a line from the player's ship to their opponents. The two smaller ships sink immediately after being hit. The biggest ship can take two hits before sinking. Mark a ship has sunk by crossing it out. Sunken ships cannot fire at other ships. The first player to sink all of their opponent's ships is the winner.
