Time to mark the family calendar because Battleship is sailing into theatres on May 18. Make family night a hit by challenging each other to a game of Classic Battleship Movie Edition before you head to the theater winner buys popcorn! The epic action of the classic naval combat game will unfold with the release of Universal Pictures Battleship starring Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson and recording superstar, Rihanna. Of course, the live action doesn’t end with the film.
Of course my son is ALL about this game of battleship (and I for one could not be MORE thrilled as I grew up saying, “I sunk your battleship” to anyone who would listen and learned to hone and craft my battleship expertise every
weekend when my dad and I would sit down and go head to head attempting to sink one another’s battleships!
But why do I REALLY love this brand spanking new Hasbro BATTLESHIP game?Because its an opportunity for some unplugged old fashioned play with my boy- just the two of us- minus all that tech and TV noise using our wits to battle and outstrategize one another- and a real chance for me to bond with my boy and find more shared interests and lay the foundation for years of battleship games in the future!
I also love when a game can piggyback off the success of a live movie and inspire my son to continue the adventure in real-life and in real time– with me his mama! With Hasbro’s Classic Battleship Movie Edition game Young naval commanders can go head-to-head with the Alien fleet in . Players choose to command either the Navy or Alien fleet and can unleash brand new super weapon cards to destroy their opponent with attacks like those from the big screen! The game comes in a convenient carrying case, making it easy to wage your own battles at home or on the go.
And with KRE-O Commanding your own fleet in the Battleship game isn’t the only way to recreate your favorite action scenes from the big screen! With the KRE-O Battleship Combat Chopper set, kids can pretend to take their missions to the skies, complete with a KREON fighter pilot and KREON alien figure. Once the chopper has been constructed, kids can push the lever to spin the rotor and launch missiles at incoming alien attacks like their favorite action heroes from the movie!
