Introducing Doodle Battle, a game based on the popular Battleship we all grew up with as kids. This one was created by our resident artist Dylan, aka Little Dude, and inspired by one of his favorite books, Tom Gates.
This is Dylan’s sketch above. I’ve adapted it and created a download for you to play! Ask a friend to join you.
(for 2 players)
Doodle at least 5 characters in your grid game card, but no more than 10. Both players should have the same amount of characters on their cards.
Make sure to keep your game board positions hidden from your opponent.
Allow the younger player (Player 1) to go first, by calling out a letter and a number corresponding to a position on the game card. Player 1 marks that box on his/her own card with an X, to record that that box has been called.
Player 2 answers with “hit” or “miss”. If there was a successful “hit”, Player 2 should scribble out that box/character with a RED color.
The winner is the first person to “hit” all of his opponent’s characters.

There are two pages of clues, Actions and Animals. The object is to draw a picture using a clue from each page. You can choose the ones you want to draw or randomly pick from one of the two methods:
Drawing out of a Hat (option A)
Rolling a die or pair of dice (option B).
You will need (A) two hats or bowls or (B) a pair of dice to play.
(A) Cut out the clues, careful to keep the two sets separate. Put each set in a separate container, mixing them up before picking one from each hat or bowl. Draw a picture as the clues suggest.
(B) Set the two pages of clues in front of you. Let the die or dice choose what you draw. You can roll one die on each page and draw the set of clues based on what the die lands on, OR roll the dice twice, and take the numbers rolled and match them to the number listed on each clue, then draw your selected clues.
Note: To get a number 1 for (B), you will have to roll one die, but to get numbers 7-12, you will need to roll a pair of dice.
Your Feature with a Creature drawing is created by drawing one Action and adding an Animal to it. Possible combinations include ‘whales eating ice cream,’ or a ‘crocodile riding a unicycle,’ or a ‘giraffe going potty.’ Here’s a few doodles that you shared with us!
