Battleship History:

Historically, Battleship has been a guessing game played by two people. It is known throughout the world as a pencil and paper game and predates World War I in this form. It was invented by Clifford Von Wickler in the early 1900s, but he never patented the game and it was soon published by Milton Bradley Company in 1943 as the pad-and-pencil game "Broadsides, the Game of Naval Strategy". Later, the game became known simply as, "Battleship". In 1977 Milton Bradley released a computerized Electronic Battleship, followed in 1989 by Electronic Talking Battleship. Battleship is still being played today on pen/paper, board games, cell phone Apps and even geocaching!

Battleship Geocaching Game:

In Battleship, there are 5 ships of various sizes (listed above) hidden on a 10 x 10 grid (100 total grid locations). Each grid location is identified by a letter (A-J) and a number (1-10). Similar to the Battleship board game - you are seeking to find geocaches at each grid location but also discovering HITS and ultimately collecting coordinates to solve each ship's puzzle cache. There are only 17 HITS in the entire game grid. Game grid caches are all traditional, small in size and will be 1-2 difficulty and 1-2 terrain. HIT & coordinate information will be within the cache container. All the caches (including the puzzles) are hidden in the south central Pennsylvania area. Prizes will be awarded to all the FTF of each puzzle cache. Please be stealthy, use proper geocaching etiquette, and BE SAFE!

Don't forget to write down the partial coordinates!!

Congratulations six-pac for the FTF!!
