  1. Thanks that explained a lot of stuff….. But I am still not clear about how to use the "Discard one or more White Peg Cards"…. How does that work?

  2. I can't understand the game at all but this video helped me 100% in understanding it Thanku so much

  3. 1. I think the instructions ment you take 1 red peg CARD away from the damaged ship, so like you can take of a 4 red peg card away from a damaged carrier when you use the power. 4:062. does the battleship ability also count to the White peg cards that damage the submarine? anyways thank you so much for helping to clarify this up for me 🙂

  4. I'd like a plastic deck but you can laminate them on your own.

  5. Hi, thanks for the video. I have one question regarding the destroyer vs submarine; what happens if I lose my destroyer before i have reviled the opponent submarine (which can be destroyed only with white pegs) ? Does these means i already lost the game 🙂

  6. We go a dollar a game here Kelly leak style😉

  7. i want to find a card game from the 80s i want this but it was older than that 80 or 90s but older just savalos

  8. Do you think it would scale up in an interesting way? Like if you had 2 sets of cards, could you play 4 player ffa, or even 2v2?

  9. I have the game in it's box and thnx for the instructions

  10. I really am looking forward to playing this after it gets delivered

  11. Thanks just played with my 7 year old it was fun!

  12. Just bought it yesterday and didn't know how to play it. But now i can thanx

  13. thanks for the video, please settle an argument im having with a friend regarding the pt boat special power, if my pt boat has been revealed can i remove a 4x red peg card from one of my ships at the start of the round? thanks!

  14. I will play it with my daughter just now. Thanks!

  15. I have 2 questions.

    1. What happens if 5 white peg cards are in hand after all boats and miss cards have been revealed?

    2. Does the special ability of the battleship card (+1 attack) get cancelled on already played cards if the battleship is destroyed?

    Thanks for the video. We went straight into the game 👌

  16. Thank you I was confused with if we could see our own hand or not

  17. Verrrrrry good and smart explanation thanks buddy 👍

  18. This card game got gifted to me a few years ago lol but to make a long story short I found it cleaning out my garage early this year couldnt be bothered reading how to play but your video helped heaps now my kids love playing it and there grown Polynesian kids 😂😂

  19. Ive always hated playing battle ship but this is way better

  20. Thank you so much for this! My 7yr old son got this for Christmas and the instructions made my head hurt! After this video, we're ready to play!

  21. Thanks for the video! I have a couple of questions. Does the ship power for adding a peg (plus 1) apply to peg cards already in play or just the cards played after that ship is revealed? And when the ship is destroyed and that power gone with it, do any extra hits gained on ships not yet destroyed, lose that extra peg that was gained whilst that ship power was in play?
    Also, when repairing a ship… even though it can’t be used directly on a hit made to a shield, can it be used on a shielded ship that has hits on it ie, can you repair a damaged ship that is shielded? Thanks for your help!

  22. My Grandson loves card games. I don't think I would have tried the Battleship game but your video explained it perfectly. I am sure he will love playing this! Thanks!

  23. the easiest explanation i could find. well done

  24. What if the ship has taken a 2 dm card and you repair it? Do you take out the 2 or take out the 2 and give it to the enemy and he places a 1 dm card

  25. We had the case where all 5 hand cards were shields and "trade white pegs" card (so no option of drawing 3 extra cards). No white or red peg cards. There were no ships revealed on the table. So the player couldn't play any card…
    Option 1: player skips turns untill a ship is revealed and he can play the shield and draw more cards. This seemed silly so we didn't do that.
    Option 2: player discards a card and draws a new one. His turn is over.
    Option 3: player can get rid of a shield on a closed grid card (maybe shielding a "miss"). But in this case you should be allowed to play the shield on a closed grid card anytime… which you probably wouldn't do, but just in principle.

    We went with choice of 2 & 3. What do you think 🙂

  26. Can you play multiple power card? For example, can a 2x turn be followed by a +3 followed by a +3?
