Ship Sinking is a popular game that has delighted young and old for decades. There are different versions of this game that you can play against a friend or against a random player. The purpose of the game is simple: hide your own ships on a board and try to sink your opponent's ships with as few shots as possible.
Before the game begins, you and your opponent must each place ships on a game board. The size of the board and the number of ships can vary depending on the version of the game. For example, some versions have a 10x10 board, while other versions have a larger or smaller board. There are also versions that have more or fewer ships.
After the ships are placed, the actual game begins. You select a square on the board and shoot at that square. If there is one of your opponent's ships on that square, the ship is hit and you get to choose another square to shoot. If you sink a ship, you may continue until you hit a square that no longer has a ship on it.
Your opponent does the same and tries to sink your ships. The game ends when all of a player's ships are sunk. The player with the most unsunk ships at the end of the game wins.
One of the most popular versions of the game is the classic version, where each player places five ships on a 10x10 board. The ships vary in size, from one square to five squares. Each player also has a radar that can be used once during the game to find the position of an opponent's ship.
