Hasbro has brought their A-game to the world of Battleship with their latest movie and new Battleship products. While I haven’t seen the movie yet, over the past few days we have enjoyed some quality time as a family putting together two of the new Battleship Kreo sets as well as enjoying the updated Battleship game.
The Classic Battleship Movie Edition Game is great for adults and kids 7 and up and retails for around $24.99. This updated version of the classic game brings the fun of the movie to your family game nights. Battle it out as the alien forces or the navy and use new “special opps” cards that add a whole new demention to the game. Use them to fire out complete columns of coordinates, fire as many shots as you have ships, or force your opponent to reveal his un-hit coordinates. The classic “hit or miss” game comes in 2 fold-able hard cases that are perfect for taking on the road. My only suggestion is pull out the storage tray before placing your ships, because otherwise it won’t open. We love this game!
There isn’t anything better than pulling out a KRE-O building set on a rainy day and settling in together to get it all set up. Last week we had plenty of rain and the KRE-O Battleship Alien Strike set and the U.S.S Missouri set kept the kids busy the whole afternoon. After they were all set up the kids headed upstairs to battle it out. The Aliens didn’t fare so well. The Battleship KRE-O sets range from $9.99 and up and are geared towards children ages 6 and up. Because of the level of difficulty with some of the larger sets I do recommend making it a family affair. My 9 and 10-year-old children have no problems with them though.
Pick up Battleship games and KRE-O sets at your favourite retailer. Have you seen the movie yet?
