OH NO , YOU'VE SUNK MY BATTLESHIP!
surprise surprise - its me replying to you on this !
used to have two of these - but sold one on the bay
thinGs to ask - is the battery box corroded? does it make sounds when you turn it on? does it have instructions
The other one I have is minty fresh - also ask if it is boxed - does it have the polystyrene inserts as without them the box just collapses on itself - also check with the photo if all the pieces are included - ie ships - you will always lose a few pegs but these can be replaced from a standard vintage game if necessary
if you get one without instructions i can always scan then from mine for you
its a great game - the only thing i dont like is the constant depth charge noise that is on throughout the game
