A totally silly project that was inspired by a picture I saw on Facebook. Somebody had made a version of the classic game Battleship into a drinking game using paper and duct tape, I took one look at the picture and said…”I can do better!”.
I used select Pine for the frame and ships and 1/4” hardboard for the playing surface. The grids are simply marked out with a magic marker and some stick on letters label the gridlines. And yes…the aircraft carrier is a fairly accurate outline of a Nimitz class carrier. The curtain was simply an old pillowcase. The two playing surfaces are hinged together for easy storage and the frame for the curtain breaks down.
I drilled out recesses on the ships with a forstner bit for the disposable shot glasses that I got at a local spirits outlet.
The rules are simple, you play on the grid intersections and if your opponent calls a number that is occupied you have to drink the corresponding shot (we used beer). It was fun to build and a hoot to play.
