Finally, a reason to learn letters and numbers

Charles got a magnetic “Battleship” game the other day and he’s been making everyone play it with him. He learned how to play in just a few minutes, putting his knowledge of numbers and letters to use. The strategy is still a bit of a stretch for him. Corwin rapidly figured out that Charles likes to put all of his ships in a dense array on one edge of the board and ruthlessly takes advantage of that. When I play Charles, I just do a transform of his moves to make it a little more even. Alice just moves stuff around and declares hits, but Charles seems OK with that most of the time.
