I don't understand the rules of this game . . .
The grid looks like this:Consider the following version of Battleship.
The first player hides a mine under one of the points of a 2 × 3 grid.
The second player places a ship along one of the 7 horizontal or vertical lines
joining two adjacent points.
The first player wins $1 from the second if the ship lands on the mine.
and pays the second $1 otherwise.
Find the game value and optimal strategies for both players.
A mine is placed on one of the points . . .
The ship is placed "along a line".
Then how does the ship ever "land on the mine"?
