I was unaware of that Hoyle.I take it that it is based on the old paper game Battleship.

I once tried to make a complete listing of Hoyle games - it's just not possible. There's currently around 50 Hoyle titles in the Chest's database and that's not even the end of it. With all the duplicate titles, I don't even know whether some are simply rereleases with a different box cover. You also find very little info about the later Hoyle titles on the internet. The only way to really find out is to actually buy every variety you find, play them and compare them.

As for Battleships and War, it's a 1998 title from the last set of Hoyle titles prior to the Cendant merger, along with Hoyle Bridge & Euchre, Hoyle Hearts & Spades and Hoyle Classic Games and Hoyle Solitaire (both of which I believe are rereleases of the 1995 and 1996 Hoyle Classic Games and Hoyle Solitaire releases). They all use the same box style and are the last Hoyle titles using the classic Sierra logo, along with the tagline "Family Fun for over 200 Years" below the box title - after that it was changed to the Sierra Attractions logo.

I also have no idea how the gameplay will look like of Battleships & War, or if there's various kinds of battleship games in it. I'll give it a spin when it arrives and let you know.

Latest addition to my collection.
Took me years to find it.

Original KQVI litho, limited to 450, signed by Roberta Williams and John Shroades.

Sold in late 1992.

And I like the fact that I was able to get it from a former Sierra employee ;-)
(well.. he worked there only for a short time and not on the AAA titles but still..)

But couldn't have managed to get it to Germany w/o amazing support from a friend on facebook.
He not only picked it up locally for me but packed it super well and was able to find a cheap shipping option too.

Was it already signed or did you ask Christy Marx?

It already was.
And I had to do some magic to remove a "To name.."-black marker above the signature ;-)
