There is no relation between this game and the historical background, it just takes you to a fantasy navy field.
As the game begins, you can see your own fleet while the opponent's fleet remains unseen. When a ship is partially damaged, the grid will change the color on which the damaged section of the ship is located. If the ship is completely destroyed, a sinking ship is displayed.
Players take turns firing guns and trying to destroy the opponent's fleet. When a player hits the ship, he/she continues to fire until the first miss; the turn then goes to the opponent, and the game continues. The game continues until one fleet is completely destroyed. The player whose fleet is destroyed first loses the game.
In volley shot, the player fires until they miss.
In salvo shot, the player has one shot for every vessel still afloat.
