Question: Although this game had been played for decades with pencil and paper, it did not gain its familiar plastic board and pegs until it was released by Milton Bradley in 1967.

Answer: Battleship. Perhaps the first version was a game called L’attaque, played by french soldiers during WWI, although another similar game was played by Russian officers as early as 1890.
