2. you use a torpedo instead of a regular turn, by announcing "torpedo" and then declaring which row or column it is entering the board from. For instance: "Torpedo. row C from the far side." or "column 6 from the top".
3. the player being torpedoed, traces the path of the torpedo on his board in the indicated direction.
a) if the torpedo does not encounter a ship the response is “Miss”
b) if the torpedo encounters a ship, the response is “Hit” and announce the coordinates of the hit.Example “Hit. C-4”.
Spotter Plane rule.
1.each player gets one spotter plane.
2.you use the spotter plane instead of a regular turn by announcing “Spotter plane” and then declaring a grid coordinate.Example: “Spotter plane.B-6”.
3.your opponent then looks at that grid and the 8 cells around it and declares how many Sightings there are in that 9 cell area.Notice they do not reveal the coordinates of the sightings. Example: “Spotter Plane gets 2 sightings.” Or “There are no sightings.”

Proposal: in conjunction with the release of the upcoming "Battleship" movie I would like to do 2 things;
1. Collect, from any and all, Battleship rule variations (like having a Spotter plane or 1 or 2 torpedoes) AND
2. Having a giant battleship tournament at a meetup around the time of the movie to crown someone as the "BBG Admiral" - a title that can be used all year until the next tournament. Yes, an annual event!
2016 is going to be a year full of board games and you've come to the right place to take part. Our group strives to both a great place for veteran players to get together and play and a perfect gateway for curious newcomers to learn more about the board gaming hobby. Whether your only experience is playing monopoly with your family on Holidays or you own every expansion to Dominion, this group has something for you.
While we are always looking for new places to play games together, we currently have four major game nights that happen on a weekly basis, they are: Monday Nights at Card Addicts in Pelham, Wednesday Nights at the Brookwood Mall, Thursday Nights at Excelsior on Lorna Road in Hoover, and Saturday Nights at Card Addicts in Pelham.
Aside from those, we constantly have fun events added to our calendar such as the Hoover Library Game Night once a month.
