Seen the movie? Now join the 3,882 people since 2007 who have played the game where the Victorian Navy defends Victoria against an attacking Russian Fleet. First played prior to the Great War (1914-18) as a pencil and paper game (and still during my youth), Battleships has evolved through a peg and board game to a computerised game.
The current movie, based on the board game, mimics the game by restricting the size of the playing field via a force field dome and restricts visibility by blocking radar systems. The pegs of the board game are mimicked by the projectiles striking the allied ships.
