My kids love to play battleship, and especially now that my daughter already knows her numbers and letters it's an easy game that they can play alone (for a short while, at least, before they actually start trying to kill each other).
But since I don't plan to take the actual board game with me on vacation, I decided to try and make a printable version. With a twist: instead of the classical battleship scenario, I decided to make a pirate version. I googled around for actual pirate ship names, for the sake of minimal accuracy.
Then I translated the original (in Portuguese) to English to share here. If you want to print one too, download the file here.
The file prints on two pages, one for each player. The colors change in each page, so that one player will always be the blue and the other the red.
I'm going to print about a zillion copies, as I'm guessing I'm going to need them this summer!

In the meantime, have a great weekend!
