I don’t know about where you live, but down here in Summer Alabama, it pretty much rains every single day in the Summer time! Pretty much every afternoon, we get nasty afternoon showers that force the hot, tired, filthy kids back into the house. We try to keep them entertained by heading to indoor places, firing up one of the gaming systems, pulling one of the many games out of our game closet, or popping a movie on the television.
On May 18, the epic action of the classic naval combat game will unfold in theatres nationwide with the release of Universal Pictures’ “Battleship,”starring Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson and recording superstar, Rihanna. Of course, the live action doesn’t end with the film. Young naval commanders can go head-to-head with the Alien fleet in Hasbro’s Classic Battleship Movie Edition game. Players choose to command either the Navy or Alien fleet and can unleash brand new super weapon cards to destroy their opponent with attacks like those from the big screen! The game comes in a convenient carrying case, making it easy to wage your own battles at home or on the go.
Mom Says: OH. MY. Goodness! I mean, it is Battleship, but better. LOL! However, we obviously haven’t seen the movie yet so the Alien Fleet kind of threw us off! We didn’t know what to call the ships and had to keep looking at the instruction booklet to say things like, “You sank my Heavy Ordnance Craft!” LOL! We really enjoyed it and with at least 4 different ways of playing, it will keep us entertained for quite some time.
One lucky 3 Boys and a Dog reader will win the own Classic Battleship Movie Edition to help them bust boredom this Summer!
REQUIRED COMMENT: Tell me about your memories of playing Battleship – when I was little, my brother and I would play all the time. Then, one year he got the Electronic Battleship and we were amazed that it could talk! Seriously, it was so much fun!
