Battleship: The Review Game

Download game fonts HERE and HERE

Game Features

  • Gameplay based on the actual Battleship board game

  • Two versions of the game included, a 2-team version and a 4-team version

  • Exciting sound effects to bring the game to life

  • Editable game board, so you can play multiple times

How to Play

  • Each team has three (4-team version) or five (2-team version) battleships of different lengths hidden on the game board.

  • A student/team chooses a letter and answers the question or completes the task on the corresponding slide.

  • If they get it correct, the teacher will take them to a reward page where they will be shown one to five missiles to fire at other teams.

  • The teacher will then go back to the game board where the student/team can choose which tiles they want to fire their missiles at. To choose a tile they will say a letter and number (ex. F3).

  • The teacher will click the tile(s) they choose to reveal if it was a hit or miss.

  • Once all missiles are fired, the teacher goes back to the question-choosing slide and the next team has their turn.

  • The last student/team with battleships on the board or with the least amount of hits at the end of the game wins.

  • Further instructions on how to play and edit the game can be found in the notes section of each slide.

Runtime

(based on experiences from me and other teachers)

  • Time: 40min; Students: 12; Finished: No


  • Time: 25min; Students: 22; Finished: No (found that students always tried to target one team - usually whoever already had the most hits - so it was hard to have a winner with whoever had the least hits because usually didn't have enough time to get that far)


  • Time: 35min; Students: 28; Finished: No (did not finish the game, AKA sink all the other teams battleships, so just went off who had the most hits)


  • Time: 40min; Students: 30; Finished: Yes (Played the two-team version with 3rd-grade middle school students to review one book lesson. Students were put into pairs, then the pairs were split into the two teams. Each pair had the chance to answer for their team when it was their team's turn (alternated each round). When it was a pair's turn, they would stand, choose a letter or number, answer the question, and fire the missiles at the other team. This worked very well and ensured every student's participation - so recommend if you have a large class too.)
