A Reiner Knizia game? Who knew?
September 26, 2008

Somebody brought this to our gaming group claiming it was a Reiner Knizia game. I was skeptical, but he was right: buried deep in the credits at the end of the instruction booklet were the words "Designed by Reiner Knizia." That caught everyone's attention enough to start a game, but I don't think the game was good enough to make me go out of my way to play it a second time. Basically everyone is given the 5 standard Battleship ships to form a convoy. Players then take turns attacking ships in other players' convoys. Each ship has a Knizia-like special power for its attack and placement in the convoy is important as well. The end result is a game that is nothing like the logic based guessing game of the original. It's more of a fighting game with lots of luck, dice rolling and a little strategy. Not a great game but not a bad way to spend 20 minutes. Its most notable distinction is that it is probably the only Knizia game published in the last 10-15 years not to have his name plastered all over the box.
