The Game | DazzleShip Battleships

Box cover of Dazzleship Battleships game (2017)
Above Last year we were asked to serve as a consultant (fact-checker on the booklet text) in the development of a new boxed game called Dazzleship Battleships, the cover of which is reproduced here. Produced by Laurence King, it has recently been published. The container cover, the open box and some of its components are shown below.

Among the inside components is a brief illustrated overview of the method and the rationale for World War I ship camouflage, called dazzle-painting.

A spread from the booklet is shown below. Overall, what a wonderful package design. A beautiful object, game or none. Collectors of exquisite graphic design will love it.
