Um, what is "the own fleet is already damaged" supposed to mean? Brown maybe? I have no idea. But it's confusing.
I don't know if this can be called a variation of the rules (I don't use it as a rule myself), but when I place my ships, I always place them with at least one space between ships. So in the commercial version, the aircraft carrier for example will not have a ship in the 16 spaces surrounding it (assuming the ship doesn't touch the edge of the grid, but the ships must be completely in the grid anyway). Does anybody play this way (either as strategy or as a requirement)?
- That was the rule when I first learned of the Salvo game from a book or magazine in the late 60's or early 70's. SlowJog (talk) 03:19, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
The one where you can shoot a torpedo, airstrike or missle. I remeber as you progress through the levels there are islands etc. I only played it once ad can't find it again. Someone link to it.
Oh and that miniclip BS game has been linked to a couple times. Get rid of some.
Battleship PC game
I have a PC version of Battleship from 1997. It was made by Hasbro Interactive. Should this version be included in the article although it is from 1997 and no longer sold widely? I found more information on the game at this site 
Kudos to shipsonline.org for linking to the article. I did a quick comparison, though, and believe it's appropriate for the external link to go to en.battleship-game.org. It is superior to shipsonline.org because it has a labeled grid and allows friends to rendezvous for a game. shipsonline.org only pairs randomly. It's possible to rendezvous manually by clicking "Let the battle begin" at the same time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tim Chambers (talk • contribs) 23:26, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
Better lead needed
In most war/conflict games, the objective is to destroy (capture, or remove) the other player's pieces. The lead says nothing about how the game is actually played. It's supposed to summarize the article, including gameplay (i.e. Rules). Sbalfour (talk) 17:55, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
