The classic Battleship just got way geekier! Karyn Tripp, a homeschooling mom-of-four, turned it into a fun way to teach her kids chemistry.

Players have to circle rows of two, three, four, and five elements to mark their ships. Then, they play by calling out coordinates. The aim is to find the elements first.

“This game can be played even by kids who know nothing about the Periodic Table Yet,” said Tripp. “My 8-year-old daughter has not studied any chemistry yet, but really enjoyed this one.”
