This is a game to practice Do versus Make. English Battleship is a game for two players where you try to guess the location of five ships your opponent has hidden on a grid. Players take turns calling out a row and column, attempting to name a square containing enemy ships. The game is played with two players. Each player gets a game sheet with two grids and five ships. There is one length 5 ship, one length 4 ship, two length 3 ships and one length 2 ship. The goal is to sink all of your opponent's ships by correctly guessing their location. Students secretly place their ships on the lower grid. Each ship must be placed horizontally or vertically (not diagonally) across grid spaces, and can't hang over the grid. Ships can touch each other, but can't both be on the same space. Players take turns firing a shot to attack enemy ships. On a turn, students will call out a letter and a number of a row and column on the grid. Their opponent checks that space on their lower grid, and says "miss" if there are no ships there, or "hit" if they guessed a space that contained a ship. Students will mark their guesses on their upper grid, with an “X” for misses and a check mark for hits, to keep track. When a ship is hit, students will put a check mark on that ship on their lower grid at the location of the hit. Whenever a ship has all of its’ length spaces checked off they must announce to their opponent that he/she has sunk their ship. The first player to sink all opposing ships wins.
