Today I have made this Free Printable Battleships Game for Kids but adults can also play this game. This is a fun strategy games and you can play it at your home and also print these to keep the kids busy on long road trips. This is a classic game and I remember that my brother taught it to me when we were kids. We used to draw the grids using hands or a ruler and we really enjoyed this game as we didn’t have many video games back then. This is a fun way to keep your kids off the screens too. I have made the printables in color and also in black and white. You can easily print this game using a printer at your home.
How to Play
This game can be played among two kids. Print two sheets of this game and give one to each kid along with a pen or pencil. The players should place all of the ships on their grid by drawing an outline of each onto the grid according to its size (ex: size 3 = 3 blocks). Ships may not overlap. The players shouldn’t see the ships of another player. Kids should take turns firing upon their enemy by calling out the location on the grid, like B-4, J-3 etc. and mark hit with a cross “X” and miss with a dot “. ” on the enemy’s ship grid. When the enemy fires upon another player that player should say “hit” or “miss”, the player should also then mark his or her ships with an X when they are hit. When a player’s ship is sunk, that player must say, “You sank my ____!” (with the name of his or her ship type). The first person to sink all of their enemy’s ships wins!
