    Battleships

    I used to play this on email with TiggsTours ages ago. Not sure if this is going to work as a multi-player game but here goes ....

    a) Save the attached spreadsheet onto your PC and fill in the page that says "My Grid". You've got five ships in total (1x5 squares, 1x4 squares, 2x3 squares and 1x1 square). None of the ships are allowed to touch each other (must be at least one blank square between them). Ships can only go horizontally or vertically. See example.

    b) Also on your spreadsheet are other pages saying "A's and B's Grid", "C's and D's Grid", etc. You will use these grids to keep a record of where the other players ships are or are not, when the game starts. There are enough grids for 11 players but you can add more.

    c) Then reply to this thread to say that you are playing this game. I will keep a list of those that are playing.

    d) When we get enough people who want to play, i'll list the names and then the game can start. I'll start off by selecting one of the other players and where i think one of their ships is. For example, "TiggsTours - B2".

    e) The next turn goes to the person who i have just selected (in this case TiggsTours). She has to reply to say if i've had a HIT, MISS or HIT AND SINK (when the hit has actually sunk her ship aswell. It would then be her turn and she can select anyone else in the game. So, she might say,

    MISS

    Wittybird - C4


    f) It is then Wittybirds to take a turn, and so on, until there is only one person left with any ships.

    g) If a player takes longer than 1 hour to reply, then another player can take over their turn, if they want. For example, if Wittybird did not reply, then DavidJames might decide to take TiggsTours C4 shot onto his grid (obviously only if it misses his ships). He can then make a selection, etc.

    Different tactics can be used and it will be interesting to see how people play this. I hope this works.

    Good Luck!

    Re: Battleships

    Seems like the easiest way to win this game is to not be around...

    Anyway, I'm up for it...

    Cool, i'll add your name to to list but we've haven't actually started the game just yet. Seeing as it is Friday today, we might as well wait until Monday for any more players to join in before we get started.

    Think we need to wait for Asif, and then when you aim, you'll need to say whose boats your aiming at...

    EDIT: Asif beat me to it!

    OK, that's fine, will do, but, erm, why, and erm, why?

    I think it would be more fun if you could say like:

    Tiggs Tours:- All - G2
    Asif:- G2 - Hit, Tiggs Tours - A3, Ducasi - F7
    Ducasi:- G2 - Miss, Tiggs Tours - H3, Asif - F1
    Tiggs Tours:- A3 - Hit, H3 - Miss, Ducasi - H7, Jenni, B3
    Jenni:- B3 - Miss, All - A7


    etc.

    Jenni:- B3 - Miss, All - A7

    etc.
    I did think about players making multiple shot selections but i think it would get too confusing trying to keep track once we get right into the game (better to start simple). Also, i know some of you only have Internet access from work (Tigg) so this also keeps it fair for them.

    Remember, when you take a shot at a player, all the other players will also record this on their grids aswell.

    I'll count you out of this game then, maybe the next one (if there is one!!).
