Battleship was first released as a board game in the late 1960s by Milton Bradley. Since then, the classic game of naval combat has been re-imagined in a variety of versions and formats. Hasbro recently added another option to the mix, Battleship Neon Pop.
Part of the company’s larger Neon Pop collection, this Battleship joins other iconic games like Perfection, Connect Four, and Monopoly. As its name implies, the throwback red-and-blue colour palette for this version of Battleship is more vibrant. The playing fields are neon, with translucent blue plastic ships, translucent red “hit” pegs, and transparent “miss” pegs. Each game unit folds up for easy storage and portability, so children ages 7 and up can play on the go.
The Battleship Neon Pop edition is available from several retailers at a cost of $19.99 USD.
