Hasbro is going to release a new version of their Battleship game line titled Battleship: Galaxies. My oldest little geek loves to play Battleship with me and this game looks like the next best thing. Miniature spaceships? Battles in space? Pew-pew lasers? Yes, please!
With a release date in June 7th, 2011, you can expect this game to be on a number of gift lists for Father’s Day. Me, included. You get to design your own game and strategy, which is a lot like “milk and cookies” for me. To put it another way, I’ll eat it up, ask for seconds, and be fat and happy. There is so much geek skill potential in this game it makes my head spin in a giddy fashion that is decidedly child-like.
Sound interesting? Decide for yourself based on what little information is currently available. Here is an official document (PDF) from Wizards of the Coast (i.e. Hasbro) about the game. It is more than enough for me buy a ticket to board the hype train.
