Grace (Calcat) | 665 comments BATTLESHIP
About the game
If you have never played battleship, here is easy and quick explanation.

Each team will have its own board (see post below) where Mods have hidden ships. Your job is to find those ships and sink them by trying to guess right coordinates. There are 15 ships on the board with 5 different sizes. In general, ships can touch each other, but not overlap. We tried to make your life easier, so they can be connected only in diagonal (for example, if one ship ends in C3, other can start in D4). We tried to have them touch as little as possible, but with so many ships there is not that much space on the board.
Ships that are hidden are: 1 battleship (5), 2 cruisers (4), 3 frigates (3), 4 minesweepers (2) and 5 submarines (1) making it total of 35 squares with a ship on it (hit).


How will this work in reading challenge?
Each square on the board has specific task team needs to read. Tasks are assigned randomly, so each team has a different task for same square (there won't be peeking in other teams to see what tasks is so you can prepare).


Wobble battleship rules
- Standard wobble rules apply
- Each team can make 10 guesses on ships on Fridays and Mondays with exception of first one that I'll allow on Thursday 16th so you can start reading on time. So guesses can be made on 16th, 20th, 24th and 27th.
- Captain or cocaptain of each team will enter team's guesses into spreadsheet and get tasks
- New round of guesses can be made even if previous ones are still being read for. Time frame for finishing tasks is end of battleship.
- Team will need to read 2 books for each task to call it done and collect points for it. And that's only 2 books (see below for exception).
- Books for same task/square need to be read by different teammember .
- All books read during battleship can be used for tasks (it doesn't matter if book is read before team got task it fits).
- There are going to be couple of different ways for teams to collect points:
- by guessing right square with ship (hit)
- by page numbers of read book edition (only used books can earn points)
- by sinking whole ship
- bonus points
- Book once used can't be used for another task. There is no moving books around (in official spreadsheet) to better fit.
- Additional perk: when team sinks a ship, they will get bonus guess they can use at once or during next set of guessing


oints
To collect any and all points for specific square team needs to read 2 books for it
- hit (square with ship) = 5 points
- pages of read edition
<199 = 1 point
200-299 = 2 points
300-399 = 3 points
400-499 = 4 points
500-599 = 5 points
600-699 = 6 points
700-799 = 7 points
800-899 = 8 points
900-999 = 9 points
>1000 = 10 points
- sank ships
battleship = 5 points
cruiser = 4 points
frigate = 3 points
minesweeper = 2 points
submarine = 1 point
- bonus points - 1 point per book
- after task for hit square is done (2 books read), members that weren't
reading that task can read book to collect extra points (page numbers
still count). Maximum is 8 bonus points per hit.
- miss squares get only page number points


- in all tasks edition that was read needs to be used
- for genre tasks, book needs to be tagged (shelved) at least by 10 people. It can be subcategory or part of the shelf (for example, science fiction fantasy works for both SF and fantasy)
- in author tasks, if book has multiple authors, any author can be used
- only authors in author tasks can be used. No narrators, translators, forward, illustrators, etc. can be used.
- for name list tasks, it has to be name on the list (no Jamie for James, etc.). Gender isn't important. Only author's first name count.
- no boxed sets, bundles, omnibuses, 2-in-1 or similar can be used. If parts 'exist' separately on GR, they need to be used as such.
