The High Seas

"You sank my battleship!" Remember that classic line from the 80's commercial? Well, these days, it takes a little more wit to sell a board game in a world littered with games for consoles, smartphones and tablets. In comes writer Pete Harmelin with a fresh injection. A funny headline matched with beautiful propaganda poster art (courtesy of designer Steven Dressler) makes for a perfect excuse to dust off an age-old favorite. But if you decide to play it with mamadukes (who's now in her 60's), beware. She might not break out the milk and cookies if you win.
