You're not really a parent until you step on one of your kid's toys with your bare feet, and shag rugs just loved to collect the little white pegs that came with this game. They also wound up in the sofa, somehow. "You sank my battleship!" was a common saying in the '70s. Some kids tried to cheat by planting all five ships on top of one another in the same location! Electronic versions of this game appeared in the '80s, but they just weren't the same.
