A step-by-step guide to play the game


Both teams (or players) place their 3 boats (a yellow, blue and green bottle cap) on their battle ship field (the upper battle ship field on the game board).


Team 1 tries to hit a boat of the other team by naming a number (from 1 to 3) and a letter (from A to C), e.g.: A1.


If they do not hit a boat of team 2, they put a white bottle cap on the A1 square of the lower battle ship field, indicating a "miss".


If they do hit a boat of team 2, they put a red bottle cap on the A1 square of the the lower battle ship field, indicating a "hit". For every hit, 1 point is earned.


Team 2 has to say whether the yellow, green or blue team was hit. Team 1 can then choose one of the exercises on the square of the corresponding colour.

E.g.: If a yellow square was hit, they can choose one of the physical exercises mentioned on the panel to play against the other team.

The winning player or team, earns 1 point.


Then, team 2 tries to hit one of team 1's boats etc.

The score is kept by moving a bottle cap on the scoreboard at the bottom of the game board.


The team that scores 9 points first, wins the game!


  • Create a bigger battle ship field to make the game more difficult.
  • Vary the game by coming up with new types of exercises.
