Battleship is a pencil-and-paper game that dates at least back to World War I. However, Milton Bradley published a plastic version in 1967--the game most are familiar with now. And today electronic versions flourish. The 1967 edition features a box cover graphic that some critics call "sexist." While a father and son are shown playing the game, a mother and daughter do the dishes in the background. Do you think this design is sexist?
