First choose your username
If you are the first player to arrive on the website, you can start a match by creating a game. Simply enter your desired username in the textbox and click on "create a game".
While you wait you can play the classic strategy game Tic-tac-toe.
Assuming there is already another player waiting you can scroll down to the list of waiting players. (If your desired partner isn't there, click on the "refresh" button to reload the list.)
Simply click on the name of your desired partner to start the game.
Water Ship Down is a game similar to Battleship with some interesting twists which make it less of a "luck game" and adds a more tactical layer.
You will play on a 18x18 map consisting entirely of water (and ships!). Every tile can contain a part of a ship and can be shot on.
Your fleet consists of a total of 6 ships.
Once two players are connected they will be able to place their ships. Simply use Drag'n'Drop to place the ships from your dock (on the right side) into your map. Press the "change orientation" button to change the way your ship faces.
After placing the ships you will get to the actual tactical game. Here you have multiple options:
Depending on the amount of ships still alive you have 1-6 high-tech missiles available. Each ship provides one missile per turn.
To select a target, click on a field on the enemy map. (right side)
You can deselect a target by clicking it again. This will add the missile back to your stock.
Another twist of Water Ship Down is the introduction of "special actions".
These provide a unique and powerful one-time bonus. So chose those moments wisely.
You are able to select a single action (or none) per turn.
Once you are happy with your selected targets and actions you can confirm your turn by clicking the "Start Attack!" buttons. If your enemy has not finished his turn you will have to wait until then.
