Hello, Kimberly!

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"?
