Battleship usually refers to the original strategic guessing board game from Hasbro. With the movie, Battleship, released in 2012, the board game has become more popular. Battleship Deluxe, Movie Edition has come out, and is destined to be a hot toy for 2012.
The original board game, Battleship, is still popular although it has been on the market for a long time. It is meant for two players. Each player commands five "ships" and the other player must use simple strategy (the opponent's board is not visible to the other player) to figure out where the battleships are, and to "sink" them.
Battleship was released on May 18, 2012 by Universal Pictures. The theatre trailer and poster spells out "From Hasbro, the Company That Brought You Transformers." Directed by actor/producer Peter Berg (Hancock, The Rundown, The Kingdom, television's Chicago Hope), it stars Liam Neeson and Def Soul/Island Def Jam/Universal Music recording artist Rihanna.
