You Sunk My Battleship?

I get home from work last night and my daughter wants to play a game. First she suggest monopoly but without much convincing on my part we settle on Battleship.

Playing along. When I finally get a hit on A3.

A2 hit.

A1 hit.

A4 hit.

A5 hit.

Doing some math in my head I have to ask “Did I sink something?”

“Nope.” She replies and on the game continues.

I shake my head thinking I guess it is possible she has all her ships smashed together and I hit the front of each ship.

A6 hit.

A7 hit. I am on a roll.

A8 hit.

“You sunk my boat with four.” Back to my math. 8 in a row with one sinking. Still plausible until.

B2 miss. What??!!

“Dad I am bored can we play a different game?” I probably should have made her continue but I really wanted to see her board.

Apparently I needed to call A0. Sneaky sneaky sneaky.

Love that girl.
