Sunken Ship is one of the fun guessing games. It's also one of the more challenging games for teens.
Grid paper works best for playing this.
Players draw two separate areas on their papers. Each area is 10 squares across and 10 squares down for a total of 100 squares.
One area is called "home fleet" and the other "enemy fleet".
They then put numbers from 1 to 10 down the left side of each of their 2 playing areas.
They also put letters A to J across the top of each playing area.
Players then put their home fleet ships on their papers by shading in a specific number of squares as follows:
Make sure to leave at least one white square between your ships.
Play begins with one player calling out a letter and number, "D 6", for example.
If this square is a shaded square, meaning a ship is located there, the other player says, "hit."
If it is a white square, meaning no ship is located there, the player says, "miss."
To sink a ship, a player must uncover all the shaded squares. When he does, the other player shouts out, "sunk!"
Play continues, with each player taking turns calling out a square on his opponent's paper.
The winner of sunken ship is the player who sinks all his opponent's ships first.
