Electronic Battleship takes the tried and true Battleship formula and adds an electronic twist; now the game keeps track of the hits and misses that occur on the battlefield. Players must choose from a series of preset battleship configurations that are programmed into the game board and input the location of each missile they fire so that the game can determine if it was a hit or miss. The first player to sink all five of the opponent's battleships wins.
