The movie Battleship is coming out in just a few weeks, and to celebrate Hasbro is rolling out a new edition of the classic game, the Classic Battleship Movie Edition game.Â They sent me a copy try with my family, and we found out that the game is the standard Battleship, with a little bit of a twist!Â Players choose to command either the Navy or Alien fleet and can unleash brand new super weapon cards to destroy their opponent.Â The new addition of super weapons makes the game a little more exciting, but it still retains most of the things that you know and expect from Battleship.
Battleship is one of those games that we have played over and over in my house.Â It is perfect because it is only a two player game, so it works for nights that we canâ€™t all play a game together.Â Plus the strategy involved in placing your ships and finding your opponents can be quite difficult.
In addition to the Battleship game I also had the chance to review the the KRE-O Battleship Combat Chopper set. This is a building set similar to Legos that creates a very nice helicopter.Â My son was happy to try this out and build it for me, and he had it put together in under half an hour.Â It is pretty cool, and has a button that spins the rotor and little levers that launch the missiles. So there are lots of possibilities for taking it on missions and destroying aliens!
The Battleship movie stars Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson and Rihanna. It seems a little unusual to make a movie from a board game, but the cast is very appealing!Â My son loves anything to do with the Navy and ships, so I know he is going to want to go see this movie.
Hasbro is committed to helping families have fun together, and you can find them on Family Game Night on Facebook and twitter.Â They have offered to send one of my readers the same set I reviewed, including both the Battleship game and the KRE-O Helicopter.
