The Classic Battleship™ game implemented between a computer bot and a player's bot.
You and your opponent have 9 ships of various sizes.
These Ships/Sizes/Qty are Carrier-5, Battleship-4, Submarine-3(qty 2), Cruiser-3(qty 2), Destroyer-2(qty 3).
The board is 10x10. (index 1-100) Unknown=0, Miss=1, Hit=2
Player places his ships on the board. Ships may not overlap but may touch.
Ships array is [9,2] where 1 is the Carrier and 9 is a Destroyer.
[start_idx, orientation; start_idx, orientation...]. An orientation of 0 is Down and a 1 is Right.
Ships[1 1;...] places the Carrier in cells [1 11 22 33 44]
Player takes a shot on the board - idx 1:100.
The computer bot will take a shot if he has any ships remaining.
The player will see an updated board for his next shot if he has any ships remaining.
Battleship_bot_000 randomly fires.
There is a Bernoulli probability question if this strategy could ever win against anything but another random bot.
