A team of Pentagram designers, led by Angus Hyland, has created modern versions of two classic games. Dazzleship Battleships, inspired by the February 13th naval war game Battleships and Rock Paper Scissors Bomb, are out next month. These vintage games are the latest addition to Laurence King Publishing’s growing line of thoughtful collectibles, activity books and adult games.

The artwork for Dazzleship Battleships has a “blend camouflage” that creates an optical illusion and confuses opponents by making a ship difficult to judge Ships outline, speed and direction. On the cover there is a woodcut illustration by Andrew Davidson.

Illustrated by Mads Berg, this version of Rock, Paper, Scissors also includes a bomb card that, as you can imagine, allows you to destroy all the other cards.
