Also, your original assertion was a typo.

The issue though is that with these other things, such as Halo or Sonic, the title is named after a main character or a main event or whatever.

BUT in the game Battleship the actual battleship is not a main event. It is arguably no less or more important than any of the other ships as you need to sink ALL the opposition's ships to win. It is not even the biggest ship, I believe the aircraft carrier is bigger by 1 tile.

Don't try to tell me that you don't get sad when your battleship gets sunk.

Sad? I never hear the end of it.

Of course not, I lie and say miss and discretely move it like a normal person.

An alternative is to get a few row boats and some friends and start throwing molotov cocktails at each other. More fun and harder to cheat.

Dude, it's called a BATTLEship. It's the simplest and most evocative title they could have picked. Sleepy

Warships would have been a better title.

RE: Favorite pictures for a laugh at everything else...
A fleet is often based around a single ship. Nowadays it's usually a carrier, back in the day it might have been a large battleship. That single ship is responsible for bringing on the pain, so to speak, and the others are there to support and defend it.

So it could still hypothetically be all about the battleship even if there's just one, assuming the intent of the group is shore bombardment and everything else is there to protect it from air and sub attacks and perform recon while it does it's thing Big Grin
