This is also an ancient game which is always suitable as a time filler, especially when two people do not know what to do. Each player draws a 10x10 box onto squared paper. The tops of the columns are filled with letters and the rows with numbers. Ships are then drawn into this playing area horizontally or vertically. There must always be one space left between ships. Five ships are available to choose from: A ship which is 5 spaces long, a ship with 4 spaces, a ship with 3 spaces and two ships with 2 spaces. By guessing the co-ordinates, each player tries to find the opponent’s ships. Each miss is marked with a point and each hit with a cross. If a hit is made, the player is allowed to take another shot. The opponent’s hits should be marked on your playing field with a different colour or a second field is drawn to keep better track of the opponent’s hits and misses.
The winners is the person who can sink their opponent's ship first.
