The game then proceeds in a series of rounds, in which each player has a turn. announceing a list of target squares that are to be shot at. The number of shots that may be fired is determined by the condition of the players' own ships.
Each player has as many shots as he has vessels afloat. Thus each time a player's ship is entirely destroyed, that player has one fewer shot on all subsequent turns. If a ship occupies one of the squares, then it takes a hit. When all of the squares of a ship have been hit, the ship is sunk. After the target list has been given, the opponent then announces which of his ships have been hit. If at the end of a round all of one player's ships have been sunk, the game ends and the other player wins.
