Family Day: Battleship Anniversary
Saturday, December 02, 2017, 02:00pm - 05:00pm
Contact Matt Doyen at (713) 666-1910 or mdoyen@houstonmaritime.org

The year is 1967. The Beatles sing “All You Need Is Love,” Gilligan is still stuck on an island, and Milton Bradley releases Battleship. In the days to follow, the band separates, the show is canceled, but the board game continues to grow. In 2017, Battleship is still a staple of family room closets and celebrating its 50th anniversary!

Families are invited to celebrate by competing in a friendly Battleship contest, stepping back in time to play Atari’s 1980 classic Battlezone on the large flat screen, and participating in the debut of
HMM’s original game LORE!

Location Houston Maritime Museum
Free admission to the museum!
Recommended ages 5 - 12
