I am looking for 6-8 people to play a game of battleships. This game will be played a little differently than the two player classic.

First of all everyone will have their ships on the same grid, which will be 16x16. The rows of the board will be the letters A-P, with A at the top and the columns will be numbered 1-16 starting from the left. Each player will have two ships, each one 3 squares long.

At the start of each round I will put up a grid showing which squares have been hits, misses, or not called yet. I will also post whose ships have sunk.

Then each player will have a timeframe to submit their shots for the round. In the first round each player will have two shots and as the game progresses more shots will be given to surviving players. If both of a player's ships are sunk, that player is out of the game. If a player misses the deadline, I will use a random number generator to choose the shots.

If you want to play, send me a PM with five choices of ship locations. Ships must be placed horizontally or vertically. For example: A1,A2,A3; B4,C4,D4 When round 1 begins I will PM each player with the two locations of their ships.

We'll start as soon as I get six players. So far only two have signed up. There is plenty of room for more. I will PM everybody at the start of the first round.
