Here is a printable battleship template with a grid on it for playing road trip Battleship.  This a two-player game for older kids who can read numbers and letters. It's a printable version of a traditional pen and paper battleship game that dates back pre-WWI.  It was made into a popular board game board game in the 1930's.

You can make your own gameboards for this by drawing two 10x10 grids for each player. Lable one grid as "my ships" and the other as "enemy ships".  Number each column 1-10, and lable the rows as letters A-J. (Or print the template sheets above).

How to Play
Ships: size
Aircraft carrier 
Patrol Boat

Plot all of your ships on your grid by drawing an outline of each onto the grid according to its size (ex: size 3 = 3 blocks).  Ships may not overlap.  Don’t let your enemy see your ships! 

Take turns firing upon your enemy by calling out plot points (example: "A-5") and marking them as “hit” (X) or “miss” (dot) on your enemy ships plot according to your enemy’s reply. 

When your enemy fires upon you, say "hit" or "miss", mark your ships with an X when they are hit.  When your ship is sunk, you must say, “You sank my ____!”  (fill in the name of your ship type). 

The first person to sink all of their enemy’s ships wins!
