Let's play Battleship using

**POLAR COORDINATES**to fire at opponent's ships this time!**Object of the game is to SINK ALL 6 of your opponent's ships before he/she sinks all of yours!**Each player starts with 6 SHIPS: One ship is 1 unit long. One ship is 2 units long. One ship is 3 units long. One ship is 4 units long. One ship is 5 units long. One ship is 6 units long. The number of pegs that make up each ship can vary. This all depends on if you choose to make your ship**STRAIGHT**or**CIRCULAR**. When setting up your board initially, use the INTERSECT TOOL to FIRST POSITION YOUR SHIPS. Then use the SEGMENT or CIRCULAR ARC tool(s) to construct these ships. The following screencast illustrates how to do this.
