The game board is divided into four sections, one for each player. The players have to get as many of their four ships as possible from space 1 to space 24 to win the game. Movement is determined by a number die and a special die. The special die decides which of the four ships is to be moved: L= Linienschiff, T= Torpedoboot, K= Kreuzer, S= Schulschiff, blank (2x)= no ship.
If a ship gets on a space with an image wich is already occupied by an enemy ship in another section, this enemy ship has to begin from space 1 again.
Whenever two ships get on the same numbered space, they constitute a bockade and the player gets two coins from each other player.
On some spaces events hinder or benefit the players. On space 24 the ship is destroyed and is eliminated from the game.
