Beer Battleship

I apologize in advance if this is the wrong forum to post this.  I want to make a portable Beer Battleship game for my friends coming home party.  I attached and image of the basic setup for the game. I need some input on how I could make this setup portable. I would want three pieces of plywood that stack together with hinges at the bottom.  When you opened the game up two pieces would lay flat on the table with the middle piece sticking straight up at a 90 degree angle.  I just can't think of how I can make it stand up straight while still making it portable.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

LED Battleship game

Just had an idea for simple to play but complex to build battleship game. If i had the money and resources to build it myself i would. So i just thought i would share the idea and see if anyone else is interested in making it. Basically the target and ship fields will be made from a large pin board for LEDs to plug into. The Ship field of one player will be wired to the target field of the other player. So when an LED is plugged into the target field and there is an LED plugged into the same spot on the opposing player's ship field the target LED completes the circuit lighting both LEDs indicating a hit. No need to call out coordinates and can be a good game for the hearing impaired. The LEDs for the ship can be placed onto sets of header pins. It would take allot of LEDS to make but would be an interesting game. 234 total LEDs are needed 34 of which will be used to create the ships. each player get 100 LEDs for shots (less then 100 are actually needed to complete a game. peg board could be made from old IDE female headers. Board should be marked with line indicating negative side of the connections. Negative side of LEDs should be visibly marked to help the user determine the right way to plug them in.

Does anyone have the plans for creating an electric battleship game?

I am looking for directions showing how to build a basic electric battleship game. Nothing fancy.    Something you might picture in Popular Mechanics or Handyman.

My Sketch Up designs (rendered)

 These were made in Sketch Up over the past 2-4 months. Most of them are almost finished, they just need texturing. Index: List of ships: - 3300mm anti-capital gun - CCM-21b "Heron 2" - Battleship and it's render /w/ editing - XUAP Medium Assault Craft (Atomosphere model, space version coming soon) - Missile Cruiser (based on missile frigate in halo) - MGV (Modular Ground vehicle) And I had an issue on another forum... If you don't like it so much that you have to start flaming... just click the little x in the top right (or the red button on the top left for Mac users) or click the back button. Please, if you wanna use this, give me credit for what I did. I spent about 4 months almost
